The much-anticipated sequel to 2018’s A Quiet Place is shaping up nicely.

Last year we were lucky enough to witness a great selection of horror films. One of the year’s finest examples was John Krasinski‘s directorial feature debut, A Quiet Place. Taking place on an Earth devastated by alien invasion, a family have discovered that the threat uses sound to hunt. As a result, the film chronicles their survival as they make as little noise as possible. 

It’s a terrific setup, facilitating maximum tension. Very rarely does a horror film as effective as A Quiet Place come along, so fans are obviously excited at the prospect of a sequel. Fortunately, there’s some news on the upcoming project. 

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are all in talks to reprise their roles in the sequel. Blunt played the role of the mother, with Simmonds and Jupe playing her young children. Each was terrific in their respective role and their cooperation with the sequel suggests we can expect it to directly follow the narrative of the first film. Screen Rant also confirmed that John Krasinski will be returning to direct, after having written the script. 

In other news, is this director the next Quentin Tarantino?
