This time around John Krasinski will be in the director’s seat only while his wife Emily Blunt will return in her role as Evelyn Abbott with Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, back as her children.
A Quiet Place 2 follows the family in a post-apocalyptic world that has been taken over by blind monsters with an acute sense of hearing.
John, 39, previously claimed that he never intended to make a sequel.
I’ll be honest with you: I really didn’t want to do the sequel. It was never built to launch sequels, which we all knew, and the studio knew too. But also, I’m a realist.
I know that when you have a success like this, everyone wants to make another one. I told them to go find another filmmaker and writer, and they said, ‘But don’t you have an idea?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I have a tiny idea,’ so they said, ‘OK, while we’re talking to other people, keep thinking about it’. They basically mind-tricked me into wanting to write it.
‘A Quiet Place 2’ is scheduled for release in May 2020.
