News John Krasinski is Writing and Considering Directing a Very Different ‘Quiet Place’ Sequel Published 1 year ago on January 2, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet John Krasinski is currently writing a sequel to his 2018 smash-hit horror flick A Quiet Place, and he could still end up directing it. According to The Playlist, the next film will be very different from the first one. Krasinski sat down with the site and revealed quite a bit of information on his involvement with the project at Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. A Quiet Place 2 will deal with the apocalyptic tragedy: “The beauty of it is that it’s the expansion of a world,” he explains. “Most sequels are about the return of a villain or a hero, and you have to build a totally new story around your favorite hero or favorite villain. [With this sequel], we actually have the world to deal with. The world is actually the star of the movie. So, this set of circumstances – how the rest of the world is dealing with this apocalyptic tragedy – is the fun of it then. That’s what drew me back.” Krasinski explains how he ended up being attached to the sequel: “I was Jedi mind tricked” into coming back,” jokes Krasinski. “So here I am now writing it and we’ll see if I end up directing it. But it’s an entertaining idea because I think for me, the cool part about this is, that it doesn’t feel like a sequel.” A Quiet Place 2 is scheduled for release on May 5th, 2020.
