Silence is golden. And, once again, delayed.
A Quiet Place: Day One–the prequel to the successful horror film franchise–has lost another release date, and has been bumped back to 2024, according to a report on Screen Rant.
The Paramount Pictures film–originally slated for a March 31, 2023 debut and then moved to Sept. 22, 2023–will now land in theaters March 8, 2024.
Day One–directed by Michael Sarnoski (Pig)–reportedly will be based on an idea by John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two installments in the series. It’s believed that neither Krasinski nor co-star Emily Blunt will reprise their roles in the prequel.
Last year’s A Quiet Place Part II--that saw the Abbott family venture forth from their home and “fight for survival in silence against the creatures that hunt by sound”–debuted to $57 million domestically, 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 box office sensation, earning more than $340 million worldwide on a $20-million budget.
