Why isn’t John Krasinski in a ‘Quiet Place 2’? That’s what the sequel fans are wondering, especially those not familiar with his fate in the first movie.

‘A Quiet Place’ tells the story of the Abbott family, who is forced to live in silence in a world where humans have been hunted down by mysterious creatures triggered by sound.

The post-apocalyptic thriller shows Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and Lee (John Krasinski) in a determined fight to protect their children while desperately searching for a way to fight back.

The 2018 hit movie, directed by Krasinski himself, is a nerve-shredder. It’s a movie designed to make the viewers active participants in a game of tension, where any sound can lead to an unfolding horror.

It’s a thrill ride – the kind of movie that quickens the heart rate – and the sequel to the ever-so-eerily-silent movie is equally as terrifying.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to the movie’s fans that Lee Abbott doesn’t appear on ‘A Quiet Place 2’. 

Krasinski’s character dies in the first movie, after sacrificing himself for the sake of his children. 

In a tear-jerking scene, Lee attempts to save his children, and whilst doing so is quickly attacked by an alien, which causes his son Marcus (Noah Jupe) to scream. 

Knowing that death would soon be upon him, Lee, who is badly injured, makes eye contact with his daughter (Millicent Simmonds) and signs, “I love you. I have always loved you.” He then lets out a yell to sacrifice himself and save the kids.

Will there be a third movie?

While there are many sequels that should have never been made, ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ is not one of them.

According to NBC, ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ smashed pandemic box office records, hitting $57 million in its debut – so it isn’t surprising that fans are eager to know if there will be a third movie to the sequel.

Though ‘A Quiet Place Part III’ hasn’t been officially confirmed, Krasinski has spoken about coming up with ideas for a third movie while he was writing the second sequel.
