Michael Sarnoski, director of last year’s exceptional revenge drama Pig, will be helming the next A Quiet Place film! Jeff Nichols was previously attached to direct this new instalment, but dropped out last year.
According to Deadline, “Not much more is known about this project other than it not being a threequel but rather a spinoff, based on an idea from John Krasinski.” Krasinski, who directed the first two films, will serve as a producer alongside Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller. Jeff Nichols was previously attached to direct this new instalment, but dropped out last year.
As for the fate of the Abbott family? “The hope is this film would help set up a potential Quiet Place universe that the studio can build on for years to come,” Deadline explains. “It is also known that, while not out of the question, Emily Blunt and Krasinski likely would not reprise their roles in this instalment.”
