Always remember: Silence is golden.
A Quiet Place: Day One–the upcoming prequel to the popular horror film franchise–is building its cast as it works towards a release date in the spring of 2024, according to a report on MovieWeb.
Alex Wolff (Hereditary) will join the previously announced Lupita Nyong’o (Us, Black Panther) and Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things) in the Paramount Pictures feature slated for a March 8, 2024 theatrical debut.
The film is directed by Michael Sarnoski (Pig) from a screenplay he wrote with Jeff Nichols that’s based on a story idea by John Krasinski–who directed and starred in the first two films in the series.
Little is known about the film’s storyline, but the title indicates it will be set during the very beginnings of the invasion of the creatures that hunt by sound.
A Quiet Place Part II–released in 2021–saw the Abbott family venture forth from their home and fight for survival–in silence, of course–against the deadly creatures. The sequel debuted to $57 million at the domestic box office, and went on to earn $300 million worldwide
The original 2018 A Quiet Place–directed by Krasinski from a screenplay he wrote with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck–was a hit with both critics and horror fans, and raked in more than $340 million worldwide on a $20-million budget.
