Actor John Krasinski made his directorial debut in 2018’s well-acclaimed thriller film, A Quiet Place that also starring him and his wife Emily Blunt. The film was an instant hit and was followed by a sequel, 2021’s A Quiet Place Part 2, and fans are wondering if Krasinski plans to do a third chapter of the film.
On Paramount investor day presentation, John Krasinski officially announced that a third installment of the A Quiet Place franchise is officially coming and will debut in 2025. The third chapter of the film was rumored to have a 2023 release date but Pig director, Michael Sarnoski is developing a spinoff for the A Quiet Place franchise to be released in 2023. Looks like a spinoff will take place first and its plot would be relevant into the third chapter of the film.
When asked about the idea of a trilogy in an interview with Collider last 2021, Krasinski explained, "It's interesting, I genuinely hadn't thought about a second one when I was doing the first one. However, I really had these questions while I was doing it. I put the fires out in the distance in the first one, and I always thought to myself, 'Wouldn't it be cool if we got to explore where those fires lead to? Who's on the other end of those fires?' But I never thought that there would be a sequel. So then when I actually came around to writing the sequel, I started with the fires. And so this time, I think when my brain started wandering of questions of what would this mean later on, I started to write down notes in case I could prepare myself for a third one."
Krasinski directed and wrote 2018’s A Quiet Place which grossed $340.9 Million globally that quickly listed him as an A-list director, considering that it's his first-ever project as a director. Following the success of the film, the sequel A Quiet Place 2 was released in 2021 and grossed almost $300 Million despite the Covid-19 cinema restrictions.
A Quiet Place takes place in a post-apocalyptic world after mysterious monsters have taken all over the world and have caused extinction on the planet. These monsters are blind and use sound to hunt their prey. We still don't have any confirmations yet if Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds, and Krasinski’s real-life wife Emily Blunt will be reprising their roles.
John Krasinski’s next directorial work will be If, starring Ryan Reynolds and Steve Carell that will push through a 2023 release date.
