A Quiet Place creator John Krasinski took to Twitter to confirm that production on Paramount Pictures’ upcoming horror drama prequel A Quiet Place: Day One has officially started. The prequel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2024.
The Office vet also shared the first behind-the-scenes photos from his visit to the set of Day One, featuring lead star Lupita Nyong’o and director Michael Sarnoski. The photos also provided us with our first glimpse at one of the film’s locations.
“Requisite photo of slate on day 1… this time with a twist! So honored to be there [on] day 1 of
A Quiet Place: Day One with the maestro Michael Sarnoski and legendary Lupita Nyong’o,” Krasinski wrote on Twitter. “Cannot wait to see what magic they conjure in this one!”
Based on an idea by John Krasinski, A Quiet Place: Day One is being directed by Michael Sarnoski, who is best known for his work in the critically-acclaimed 2021 drama Pig. The prequel will depict the arrival of the blind aliens that have fully taken over the world first envisioned by John Krasinski in the 2018 original. Joining the Oscar-winning actress are Stranger Things breakout Joseph Quinn and Alex Wolff (Pig, Hereditary).
The sequel shook up the tone of the horror franchise with a thrilling scene that showed the chaos of the early days of the invasion. The prequel will further expand on this concept while also shifting the perspective beyond the Abbott family that the main series follows.
