A sequel to A Quiet Place was given the greenlight almost the instant the first film came out in theaters. Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos said about the announcement, “We’re thrilled to say that we’re already working on the sequel to A Quiet Place.”
While the sequel was confirmed, it wasn’t clear if original director and co-writer John Krasinski would return. But, it looks like he will be back in some capacity. He will write the script. More on the report below.
John Krasinski‘s A Quiet Place was already predicted to be a hit with audiences even before it was going to be released. And now that the relatively low-budget film is one, it should come as no surprise that Paramount has already greenlit a sequel.
