The first film in the series premiered in 2018, starring Krasinski alongside his wife, actress Emily Blunt. The franchise follows a family fighting to survive in a world invaded by aliens who hunt by sound. It was succeeded by A Quiet Place II in May 2021, in which Krasinski had a cameo role.
There’s also a spinoff set in The Quiet Place world currently underway from Pig director Michael Sarnoski.
Blunt first teased that Krasinski may have a potential trilogy in mind during an interview last May. “I think he just wanted to see how people responded to [Part II] before he fully engaged his brain on a third one,” she said. “But he has a couple of great ideas on it.”
Krasinski didn’t reveal who would be directing or writing the third installment of the trilogy, though it appears that he would be the likely choice.
