A Quiet Place sequel release date set for 2020
Writer/director/star John Krasinski took to Twitter this morning to announce the release date for the highly-anticipated follow up to his acclaimed 2018 horror hit, A Quiet Place, which is slated for a May 15, 2020 release.
From Paramount Pictures, A Quiet Place opened in theaters on April 6, 2018, and grossed over $334 million worldwide on a $17 million dollar budget.
It was previously announced that Krasinski would be returning to script and direct the project, but some doubt had been cast upon whether or not he would helm the follow-up. Deadline however has confirmed he will direct the sequel.
The film was directed by Krasinski, who starred opposite his real-life wife Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns). Noah Jupe (Suburbicon, Wonder) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck) round out the cast.
In the modern horror thriller, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you. The film has minimal dialogue, because silence is survival.
A Quiet Place is produced by Michael Bay (Transformers) and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller (Ouija, The Purge, Texas Chainsaw Massacre), from a spec script by Bryan Woods & Scott Beck which was rewritten by Krasinski. The sequel is currently slated to hit theaters on May 15, 2020.
