In a recent interview with Collider, John Krasinski revealed that he has thought about, and jotted down ideas for, a third Quiet Place film.
The highly anticipated sequel continues to follow the Abbott family as they traverse through a post-apocalyptic world where any sound attracts frightening monsters.
During the promotional interview for A Quiet Place Part II the writer/director/producer/actor revealed that it was a conversation with his wife and costar, Emily Blunt, that sparked the idea for a third addition to the series.
It was actually my wife, when she read the script for the first time. She said, ‘what I love most about the movie is it doesn’t feel like a sequel. It feels like the second book in a trilogy of books.’
Elaborating a bit more on the possibility of a third movie he added that while writing A Quiet Place and Part II he found himself adding in scenes that could potentially be their own stories.
It’s interesting, I genuinely hadn’t thought about a second one when I was doing the first one. However, I really had these questions while I was doing it. I put the fires out in the distance in the first one, and I always thought to myself, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we got to explore where those fires lead to? Who’s on the other end of those fires?’ But I never thought that there would be a sequel. So then when I actually came around to writing the sequel, I started with the fires. And so, this time, I think when my brain started wandering of questions about what would this mean later on, I started to write down notes in case I could prepare myself for a third one.
While part II has not always been part of Krasinski’s plan, it’s clear that he’s put in a lot of thought and effort into making sure it fits in with the world that has already been created and that we’ve come to love.
If A Quiet Place Part II is as successful as its predecessor, it won’t be too long before we start hearing news that a Part III is in the works.
The A Quiet Place Part II release date is still undetermined.
