​John Krasinski Teases A Quiet Place 2 With Creepy Photo

​John Krasinski Teases A Quiet Place 2 With Creepy Photo

While many of us have only just started talking out loud again after watching the seriously unnerving A Quiet Place - in which characters must stay completely silent in order to stay alive - it looks like we now have a second instalment on the way.

It's okay, though, as we've still got a while yet - the film's not out until 15 May 2020, although in the meantime John Krasinksi has been building the suspense over on Instagram.

Teasing the date with a photo of an eerie doorway, he wrote: "...Time to go back. #PartII 5-15-20."

Obviously, it's not giving much away, but I've still got the chills just thinking about what he's got in store for us - which, by the sounds of things is more of the good stuff.

Krasinski, who directed and wrote the film, and also starred alongside real-life wife Emily Blunt, was initially hesitant to pen a sequel. However, the incredible response from viewers forced his hand.

In an interview with film website Deadline, he admitted: "I'm surprised people aren't like, 'Nah, we know what this is, and we just want to leave it as it is.'"

Krasinski continued: "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."

He also told the website in December last year that the new movie would focus on brand new characters, rather than the Abbott family around whom the first film revolved.

"We have the world, and you can drop whoever you want into that world and everyone feels connected to it," Krasinski said.

"The reason I decided to go back, in the end, was this world is so rich, and it's so much fun to explore. There are so many different things to see now. Everyone else in the world is experiencing this, so I'm curious to see what that looks like from another perspective."

*Whispers* I think we're ready to go back, just about...
