Back in November of last year it was announced that Paramount Pictures is expanding the A Quiet Place franchise with a spinoff movie from Take Shelter and Midnight Special writer-director Jeff Nichols, and now Deadline brings word that the studio has set a March 31st 2023 release date for the project.
As reported by the trade, the film is still early in development and is “simply being billed as the next installment, broadening the post-apocalyptic world introduced in the first two movies.” It will not serve as a sequel to A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, but is based on an idea from John Krasinski, writer and director of the first two films.
After a pandemic-related delay, A Quiet Place Part II opened last weekend and has grossed $93 million worldwide at the time of writing, adding to the $341 million that its predecessor earned back in 2018.
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
A Quiet Place Part II features returning cast members Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe and John Krasinski alongside Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) and Djimon Hounsou (Captain Marvel).
