'A Quiet Place 2' Gets Summer 2020 Release Date
Paramount has finally given us a release date A Quiet Place 2, which the studio confirms will be hitting cinemas on 15 May 2020.
The project is reportedly still in the early stages of its development - according to Movieweb.com, producer Andrew Form recently said they're not rushing into anything, and are waiting for the perfect story to give to the sequel.
He also confirmed that John Krasinski - who directed and starred in the first film - will be back. However, it's unclear what role he'll play for the second film.
We found out about the forthcoming film earlier this year, when we were given the good news that there would be a follow-up to this year's surprise hit, A Quiet Place, which has been thrilling and terrifying audiences across the globe since its debut at South by Southwest back in March.
The original film cost just $17 million (£12.5m) to produce, but it swiftly became a box office success story.
"If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from The Office would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, 'Well, I should go work at Paramount'," said Jim Gianopulos, CEO of Paramount, while announcing the sequel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.
In an interview with film website Deadline, Krasinski, who starred in the movie alongside wife Emily Blunt, revealed a little more about what we could expect from the sequel.
"It's only a short while since the movie came out," he said.
"But already people are saying, 'We want to live in this world more,' which is really interesting. I'm surprised people aren't like, 'Nah, we know what this is, and we just want to leave it as it is.'"
He added: "To be perfectly honest, it was never really on my mind while we were making it. I never really thought of it as an expanded world; I always thought of it as a one-off.
"The thing that I loved in the movie, where my mind kept wandering as we were making it, was the question of who was on the other end of those fires, when the father lights the fire and in the distance those other fires light up.
"How did those people survive? How did that old man survive?
"In the extreme these characters are going through, there's no room to think about that. They're there, there's an old man who's about to scream, they just have to deal with that. I think it would be interesting to see what's going on elsewhere at this same time."
