Last August, it was revealed that a sequel to the scary sleeper smash A QUIET PLACE will be released by Paramount Pictures May 15, 2020, and today we’ve learned that the original director is returning.
John Krasinski, who helmed and starred in A QUIET PLACE, posted to Instagram a photo and message confirming that he’s encoring on the follow-up film. As before, he’s scripting the new movie with Scott Beck and Bryan Woods (the trio were nominated for Best Original Screenplay by the Writers Guild of America for PLACE). The storyline of the currently untitled sequel has not been revealed, nor whether any of the original cast will return. A QUIET PLACE was not only last year’s highest-grossing horror film with $188 million at the domestic box office, but the second highest-grossing original movie after BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.
