Paramount Pictures has confirmed a third installment for its A Quiet Place blockbuster franchise to be based on the original idea by John Krasinski. The studio has tapped Mud and Midnight Special filmmaker Jeff Nichols to write and direct the third picture with a scheduled release for 2022.
Krasinski co-wrote, directed, and starred in the first film of the sci-fi horror movie series released back in 2018. He then directed, starred, and wrote the screenplay for the upcoming sequel, which is set to release on April 2021 after the studio delayed its originally slated March debut due to the pandemic.
According to Deadline, the plot and expansion of the franchise are kept under wraps, however, Nichols is expected to broaden the world originally introduced, where survivors are forced to live in silence as monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing hunt them in a post-apocalyptic world.
Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller will produce the film via Platinum Dunes together with Krasinski under his Sunday Night banner and partner Allyson Seeger to executive produce the upcoming third installment.
