‘A Quiet Place’ Spinoff Debut Bumped Back Six Months

You’ll have to keep the noise down a little bit longer.

The next entry in the budding A Quiet Place franchise–described as more of a spinoff than another sequel–this week became another casualty of the continuing pandemic. The film’s release date has been pushed back to Sept. 22, 2023 from the original March 31, 2023 premiere, according to IndieWire.

This untitled Paramount Pictures film will be directed by Michael Sarnoski (Pig), a replacement for Jeff Nichols, who passed on the helming gig last October. Nichols reportedly is working on a new science-fiction project at Paramount.

Little is known about the spinoff at this time, but it has been reported that it is based on an idea by John Krasinki, who directed and starred in the first two installments.

Last year’s A Quiet Place Part II-which was the first post-pandemic theatrical-only release–debuted to $57 million domestically, and went on to earn $300 million worldwide.

The 2023 spinoff will likely draw from that sequel that saw the Abbott family venture forth from their home and into the outside world, where they had to “fight for survival in silence against the creatures that hunt by sound.”

The original 2018 A Quiet Place–directed by Krasinski from a screenplay he wrote with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck–made a big splash at the box office, raking in more than $340 million worldwide on a $20-million budget.
