John Krasinski has confirmed the release date for his A Quiet Place sequel and shared a photo from the film’s set.
And fans won’t have to wait long for the film, as the actor and director said it will be out on May 15, 2020.
Posting a picture of the film’s set on his Instagram page, Krasinski captioned the snap “…time to go back. #PartII 5-15-20.”
The original, which was released in April 2018, followed a family who were on the run from murderous extra-terrestrial creatures. Featuring barely any dialogue, the family were forced to live in almost complete silence due to the creatures’ hyper-sensitive hearing it used to hunt.
Krasinski directed and starred in the film alongside his real life wife Emily Blunt, who later won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her work.
He said: “It’s not like Alien or Jaws where the main villain is the thing you’re repeating; it’s an actual entire set of rules and the circumstance that the world has undergone that you can play in very different facets.”
While Blunt added: “The idea of seeing who these people were before this all happened would be interesting,” revealing that fans seemed more eager to pick up where the first film left the Abbot family.
“I think actually it’s now what’s the next chapter and what happens next,” Blunt continued. “I think people feel very invested in this family.”
Last year, Krasinski also opened up about the potential for an Office revival and said he hoped it would return to TV.
