The highly anticipated (and much-hyped) A Quiet Place II just hit theaters this weekend, but plans reportedly are well underway for a third installment in the horror series.
The demand for another film certainly would seem to be out there. Projections call for A Quiet Place II to enjoy the largest opening weekend of any feature during the pandemic era–an estimated $57 million–topping the monstrous take for Godzilla vs. Kong.
And writer/director John Krasinski this week revealed that a script for a third movie has already been written, according to screenrant.com. Reports have it that Jeff Nichols–the filmmaker behind Take Shelter (2011) and Midnight Special (2016)–has submitted a script for the next A Quiet Place entry.
Krasinski did not divulge any details about the film’s focus or if it continues the same storyline or perhaps could be a spinoff of the first two films. But that kind of information surely will come down the pike before long.
A Quiet Place II–from Paramount Pictures and Krasinski–follows the Abbott family as they venture out from their home and into “the terrors of the outside world as they fight for survival in silence against the creatures that hunt by sound.”
The film–rated PG-13 for “terror, violence and bloody/disturbing images”–stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou.
The original 2018 A Quiet Place–directed by Krasinski from a screenplay he wrote with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck–was an eye-popping box office surprise, grossing more than $340 million worldwide on a budget of $20 million.
