A sequel to the 2017 runaway hit A Quiet Place is in the works. The original movie film earned over $330 million on a $17 million dollar budget.
John Krasinski wrote and directed the film with starring his wife Emily Blunt. Both stars recently spoke about ideas for the upcoming sequel.
“Why I had this little idea that’s now gotten bigger is most sequels are about a villain returning or a hero returning, and you have to build this entire world around just the idea that I have a hero or a villain. That’s a lot, and I think that’s where a lot of sequels go wrong because as much as you love that hero or villain, the entire thing is fabricated just to make that person work. With A Quiet Place 2, we have the world. So it’s actually the world that’s built, it’s the idea that the rest of the world is going through this exact same experience. Are there other people that have to survive like this? It’s that idea of living through the set of circumstances, not again in the same way obviously, but exploring it more. You only got to do it intimately for a small amount of time, so what happens next?”
A Quiet Place 2 hits theaters on May 15th, 2020.
