Good news! Paramount Pictures has confirmed that they are working on a prequel of the hit sci-fi thriller franchise, A Quiet Place. The spin-off movie, entitled A Quiet Place: Day One, will be directed by Michael Samoksi with a script written by Jeff Nichols. Even though John Krasinski directed the first two films, he has stepped back from this role to be a producer.
Here's what we know about A Quiet Place: Day One:
When Is A Quiet Place: Day One Coming Out?
Paramount Pictures has set a release date for A Quiet Place: Day One. According to its announcement, the movie will be released in theaters on March 8, 2024.
Initially, the movie was set to be released on September 22, 2023. Unfortunately, the release date was moved back to avoid any conflict with the releases that Disney and Universal Studios has lined up at the same time.
It's important to point out though that A Quiet Place: Day One is different from the upcoming A Quiet Place Part III that Krasinski will be directing. The latter will continue the story of the second film and is set for a theatrical release in 2025.
Has A Quiet Place: Day One Filming Began?
With a release date set for next year, it's imperative that the cast and crew start filming the scenes for the movie. And that's because post-production will likely take a while since this is a sci-fi thriller with aliens in the story.
Thankfully, producer John Krasinski has given his followers an update on the progress of the film. The actor/director/scriptwriter shared a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos from the set.

What Will A Quiet Place: Day One Story Be About?
Right now, details about the plot of A Quiet Place: Day One have not yet been revealed. But based on its title, it's likely that the film will be about the start of the alien invasion.
Since the film has been described as a spin-off instead of a "threequel," it's possible that the film will focus on an entirely new set of characters and storylines. In A Quiet Place Part II, there was a scene where the Abbotts were hanging out with their friends and neighbors as a normal day before a meteor hurdled toward Earth and the alien invasion began. So it's possible that this scene will be expanded in the film.
But even though the Abbott family will no longer be the main focus of the film, A Quiet Place: Day One is still part of that universe.
Who Stars in A Quiet Place: Day One?
Since there will be an entirely new set of characters in A Quiet Place: Day One, we won't expect to see John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, or their children in this film. There will be a new set of actors, which include:
- Lupita Nyong'o
- Joseph Quinn
- Alex Wolff
This is all we know about the cast of A Quiet Place: Day One so far but we'll update this post once more information becomes available.
