The Sequel to “A Quiet Place” Has Been Moved Up

We’re heading back to a quiet place sooner than we realized…

John Krasinski’s directorial debut, A Quiet Place, earned $340 million globally, leaving no doubt that a sequel would follow.

In addition to its impressive box office intake, the film was praised by critics and garnered a Screen Actors Guild Award for star Emily Blunt, as well as a nomination at the Writers Guild Awards for Best Original Screenplay.

Blunt — who is married to Krasinksi — will reprise her role as the wife and mother of two children, all of whom have to live in silence so as not to attract evil creatures that hunt by sound. She will be joined by Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds, who will also be returning, while Cillian Murphy has joined the cast.

Paramount Pictures has now announced that the still unnamed sequel to A Quiet Place will be released earlier than expected.

The movie was initially scheduled for May 15th, 2020, but will now premiere two months earlier on March 20th.
