A Quiet Place was a hit with moviegoers and critics alike, so it was no surprise when Paramount decided to move forward with a sequel. It is not currently known if anyone from the previous movie will return to star, but John Krasinski, who directed, co-wrote, and starred in the film, has been working on the script for its upcoming continuation. Now, it seems the project will move into production soon, as the film is expected to arrive in theaters next May.
A Quiet Place is set in a post-alien invaded world, where members of society struggle to live after the world is decimated by creatures hunting by sound. In order to stay alive, those who have survived are forced to suppress the use of sound to stay undetected by the creatures.
Alongside Krasinski, the cast included Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds, Cade Woodward, and Leon Russom. The film focuses on the Abbott family and their efforts to stay alive, while also raising children during the apocalypse. Not much is known regarding what direction A Quiet Place 2 will take, but Krasinski stated that it could focus on a new group of survivors. While details regarding the plot are scarce, they should become more clear as the film nears production this summer.
