John Krasinski Wants to Explore Another Perspective in A Quiet Place Sequel

The actor/director wants us all to stay quiet with fresh faces the next time around.

Sequels typically continue a story started by the first movie and continue to drag along its characters in the process. The upcoming sequel to A Quiet Place, however, might not travel that often-traveled path. The first movie was an unexpected sleeper hit, bringing in $340 million on a paltry $17 million production budget, which makes the idea of a sequel somewhat inevitable. Critics and fans alike rallied behind this wholly-unique film experience. Shortly after, it was announced John Krasinski would indeed be involved in the sequel.

What is new, though, is the direction this sequel will be heading in. Don’t expect any returning characters if Krasinski has his way. In an interview with Deadline, he made it clear he is intending to continue the story using the world he built in the first film, but he wants to do so through the eyes of different characters and possibly in a different setting.


I love the idea, as it keeps the sequel fresh before the series even has a chance to get stale, but other fans might not be too keen on the idea. With well over a year before the sequel launches on May 15th, 2020, there is plenty of time to get on board with this new direction.
