A Quiet Place 2 Moved Forward to March 2020
John Krasinski’s follow-up film will release sooner than originally planned.

Back in February, news on a sequel to A Quiet Place kicked into high gear with the announcement that John Krasinski would return to write and direct the new film. The follow-up effort was initially given a release date for next spring on May 15th, but Paramount Pictures announced today that the movie will now premiere earlier on March 20th, 2020.
In April 2018, A Quiet Place was a hit at the box office, opening to a respectable $50.2 million and taking in over $340 million globally by the end of its run. Following that success, the studio was ready to move forward on a sequel with Krasinski only loosely involved, but it was later confirmed that the actor-filmmaker would indeed be back to write and direct.
For the upcoming sequel, Emily Blunt is set to return to reprise her role from the original, along with young stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. The last bit of casting news we caught wind of was that Cillian Murphy was in talks to join the film in a starring role. The actor is known for playing the leading role of Jim in 28 Days Later. He later went on to appear in a number of Christopher Nolan films, such as The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, and Dunkirk.
Written and directed by John Krasinski, A Quiet Place 2 will star Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, Edge of Tomorrow), Cillian Murphy (The Dark Night Rises, Inception), Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. The film will hit theaters on March 20th, 2020 with production scheduled to begin this July.
