A third film in the A Quiet Place franchise has just been announced and penciled in for a 2023 release date by Paramount.
Back in November, LMO reported that Paramount has announced it will release the third film from its A Quiet Place franchise, and following the success of Part II, the studio is now in top gear to continue pumping out more of these films.
The currently untitled film, which is being written and directed by Jeff Nichols, won’t be a sequel. Instead, it’s being billed as the next installment based on an idea from John Krasinski, according to Deadline.
Nichols, who previously directed films like Mud and Loving, will be broadening the post-apocalyptic world introduced in the first two movies. Krasinski, who co-wrote and directed the first two films in the horror franchise, is expected to step back and guide the sequel as a producer.
A Quiet Place: Part II landed in US cinemas last week and broke the US box office record in the pandemic era for its opening weekend.
Across its first three days in cinemas, the horror sequel starring Emily Blunt generated $48million (£34m) in revenue, making it the biggest three-day haul since the pandemic began.
The film has since made $69.1million stateside, which is 3% ahead of the first A Quiet Place at the same point in time. The running total of the two Krasinski-directed movies stands at $432million-plus worldwide.
The new instalment in A Quiet Place film universe is expected to arrive on March 31st, 2023.
