JEFF NICHOLS WILL WRITE AND DIRECT A THIRD FILM, BASED ON AN IDEA BY JOHN KRASINSKI
The American film director and screenwriter from Little Rock, Arkansas known for his films Take Shelter (2011), and Loving (2016), Jeff Nichols will write and direct a third film, based on an idea by John Krasinski.
Because of the pandemic, we're still waiting for the follow-up to A Quiet Place.
But there is movement within the Quiet Place movie universe, as Midnight Special's Jeff Nichols will write and direct a third film, based on the idea by Krasinski.
Deadline reports that the plot is being kept quiet for now (good call – don't want it to be savaged by alien beasties), but there's speculation that it might not be a direct sequel, but instead following a story elsewhere in the US or the world, where the threat of the creatures remains.
Nichols feels like a good fit – he brings a personal touch to both drama and sci-fi (including films such as Take Shelter and Loving) and is also a smart filmmaker.
The original A Quiet Place, of course, came from writers Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, with Krasinski polishing the script, directing and co-starring alongside Emily Blunt in the story of a family who must survive the post-apocalyptic situation. A Quiet Place Part II is currently scheduled for 23 April next year.
