Although a third movie in the Quiet Place franchise was already announced last year, speculation circled a 2023 release date for that final part of the movie’s trilogy. But now, creator and star John Krasinski has updated that date with the confirmation that we’ll see A Quiet Place III hitting theaters in 2025.
Krasinski made the announcement during Paramount’s investor day presentation on Tuesday. And although no director or writer has been announced just yet, we’re all hoping to see Krasinski in that seat once again.
The original A Quiet Place movie released in 2018 to critical acclaim. It told the story of a family (starring Krasinski and his real-life wife Emily Blunt) who were surviving a strange apocalypse where sound would summon creatures with ultra-sonic hearing. Written and directed by Krasinski, the film went on to make $341 million globally.
So as you might imagine, a sequel was written and directed once again by Krasinski for release in May of 2021. Although it did not star Krasinski as the main character, it still earned $297 million globally, even during a pandemic.
But rumors have already begun to swirl about the writer and director of this third installment. Some say that Jeff Nichols will take that job, but an interview with Emily Blunt in May points toward Krasinski continuing his streak.
“He has a whole arc of ideas that could work,” she said in the Collider interview. “I think he just wanted to see how people responded to this one before he fully engaged his brain on the third one. But he has a couple of great ideas.”
If Nichols does take over, we can be confident that the movie will be in good hands. Some of his more popular films include Matthew McConaughey’s Mud and the apocalyptic thriller Take Shelter.
In the mean time, Krasinski is continuing his work with Paramount by directing a comedy called If, starring Ryan Reynolds and Steve Carell that’s due out next year.
