Paramount has dated the still untitled “A Quiet Place” sequel for May 15, 2020, the studio announced Wednesday.
“A Quiet Place,” directed by John Krasinski, starred Krasinski and Emily Blunt and was released in March. The film was the number one movie at the box office for three consecutive weeks and grossed $332 million at the worldwide box office.
The only other movie opening on May 15, 2020 is “Scooby-Doo,” which will be directed by Tony Cervone and Dax Shepard.
At CinemaCon in April, Paramount chairman Jim Gianopulos told exhibitors that the studio was developing a sequel. The screenwriting team behind the silent horror hit signaled they had more set pieces and characters in the original script.
Krasinski will next star on the TV series “Jack Ryan,” in which he plays the titular character. He will also follow up his directing stint on “A Quiet Place” with “Life on Mars,” which will follow a woman living in an abandoned colony on Mars.
