John Krasinski is returning to the director's chair for A Quiet Place 2 (not yet confirmed as the official title), and it looks like we'll be seeing the film a little sooner as we've learned that Paramount has moved its release ahead by two months from May 15th to March 20th, 2020.
Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are reprising their roles.
Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later) has also joined the cast.
In a recent interview with Business Insider, Krasinski teased the sequel.
"I don’t even see it as a sequel," Krasinski told the site. "Emily [Blunt] actually blew my mind by categorizing it the correct way after I pitched it to her. She said, ‘This isn’t a sequel at all — this is the second book in a series of books. It’s a widening of a world.’ And I thought that’s the best way to look at it. It doesn’t feel like a sequel — it’s a continuation of living in that world."
He continued, "I can’t wait to get in there and keep writing and see what this movie wants to allow itself to be. And that will happen in the script process and the shooting and the editing. But I think what’s cool about the second part of this movie is the same set of rules have to apply. I can’t just introduce a world where you can make a ton of sound, and if I did, there would have to be a reason for it. So it’s figuring out if there are smart and clever ways to do it."
The first film told the story of an isolated family of four that must live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound and grossed $340 million at the global box office last year.
