John Krasinski announces that A Quiet Place 2 has wrapped filming with a behind the scenes image. The horror world was taken by a silent storm early last year when the John Krasinski-directed A Quiet Place become one of the biggest surprise hits of 2018. A financial behemoth and critical darling, A Quiet Place took a simple idea and elevated it into a truly terrifying spectacle. It was no surprise that Paramount quickly ordered a sequel to the film, with Krasinski once again in the director’s chair, even though his on-screen character died at the end of the movie. As of Wednesday morning, A Quiet Place 2 is one step closer to hitting theaters.
Writer-director Krasinski celebrated the start of production on his Quiet Place sequel with a BTS photo, and now he’s released another image to celebrate the wrapping of filming on the horror movie. The bridge in the image will of course be familiar to fans of the original movie. See Krasinski’s post in the space below:
Not much has been revealed about the plot of A Quiet Place: Part II, but Krasinski himself did promise that it won’t be a typical horror sequel. According to Krasinski, the film will focus on other survivors besides the returning members of the Abbott family (Krasinski’s character of course won’t be back, since he died in the original film), and will differ from sequels to movies like Alien and Jaws in that it doesn’t have to focus on the villains, but has a whole world to explore.
Written and directed by John Krasinski, A Quiet Place 2 stars Emily Blunt and is scheduled to be released on March 20, 2020.
