According to sources, Krasinski will step down as director and hand the reigns over to Mud’s Jeff Nichols. Reports from November 2020 originally stated that the Nichols-helmed A Quiet Place project will be a spinoff, however the story is still based on an idea by the original creator. Krasinski will instead board the film as a producer alongside Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.
Franchise staple Emily Blunt recently revealed that A Quiet Place could become a trilogy, sharing that Krasinki “has a whole arc of ideas that could work.” She continued, “I think he just wanted to see how people responded to [Part II] before he fully engaged his brain on a third one. But he has a couple of great ideas on it.
A Quiet Place Part II, which stars Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou, opened with $58 million USD over Memorial Day Weekend and is expected to cross $100 million USD at the domestic box office.
The untitled A Quiet Place film premieres March 31, 2023.
