A Quiet Place 2 sneaks into production
Paramount Pictures has announced that A Quiet Place 2, the sequel to the surprise 2018 hit horror film, has commenced production with a release date of May 15, 2020.
Emily Blunt returns alongside cast members Noah Jupe (Suburbicon, Wonder) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck), with John Krasinski set to write and direct again. Golden Globe nominee Cillian Murphy (Breakfast on Pluto) and Brian Tyree Henry (Child’s Play) will also star in the sequel.
2018’s A Quiet Place opened in theaters in April of that year and grossed over $334 million worldwide on a $17 million dollar budget.
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.
