Having pushed up its release date by a couple of months, Paramount Pictures has now announced that principal photography is underway on A Quiet Place 2, the sequel to 2018’s smash hit horror.
John Krasinski is returning to direct the sequel, which sees the return of cast members Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe as the surviving members of the Abbott family, along with new additions Cillian Murphy (Breakfast on Pluto) and Brian Tyree Henry (Child’s Play).
The first film, released in April of last year and grossing a whopping $334 million worldwide, saw the Abbott family struggling for survival in a world inhabited by mysterious and deadly extraterrestrial creatures which hunt by sound.
Although writer-director and star John Krasinski had previously teased taking the story in a completely different direction, it was subsequently announced that the sequel will instead continue the story of Blunt’s Evelyn and her children. It is set to hit cinemas on March 20th 2020.
