Paramount CEO Confirms ‘A Quiet Place’ Sequel is in Development

Emily Blunt in A QUIET PLACE, from Paramount Pictures.

Since its theatrical release on April 6th, A Quiet Place has been making a massive amount of noise at the box office. The mostly dialogue-free thriller starring John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds has maintained its number one spot since its opening weekend, only briefly being unseated by Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage. It’s no wonder that Paramount Pictures is already planning their next move with this film in mind.

Wednesday evening, during the studios’ CinemaCon presentation, Paramount CEO  Jim Gianopulos made the official announcement that everyone has been waiting to hear. He confirmed that a sequel to A Quiet Place is, in fact, currently in development. CinemaCon’s official Twitter account shared the news publically.

A Quiet Place follows a family of four (Krasinski, Blunt, Jupe, and Simmonds) who must navigate their lives in complete and total silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.

Krasinski directs the re-worked story by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck with Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller as producers.

A Quiet Place is currently playing in theaters nationwide. What do you think of the news that A Quiet Place sequel is in the works? Are you excited? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
