A new spinoff set in the same universe as the original A Quiet Place movie is said to be in the works with Midnight Special director Jeff Nichols taking the helm from star John Krasinski.
Of course, we’ve already heard the exciting news about A Quiet Place II coming next year, but this surprise announcement sets the stage for a full-blown franchise.

A Quiet Place is John Krasinski’s 2018 hit post-apocalyptic thriller based on the idea of avoiding vision-impaired monsters by not making a sound. Of course this isn’t easy, and it results in some pretty terrifying and heart-breakingly unexpected scenes, which is one of the reasons that the movie made over $340 million at the box office.
A Quiet Place II was originally set to launch in March of this year, but COVID-19 had other plans, so it was postponed until September, and then again until April 23, 2021.
But this new project is still a bit of a mystery so far. “They are keeping details of the new plot under wraps,” Deadline said during its exclusive report of the new film. “But I would not be surprised if this was not a straight sequel, but rather broadened the world that the original introduced […] The movie progressed so quickly you barely had time to ask how the world got that way, and whether the creatures might be defeated. So there’s plenty of room creatively to stretch this out.”
