Actor John Krasinski has revealed he is currently writing the sequel to his critically-acclaimed directorial venture A Quiet Place.
The 38-year-old actor directed the movie and also starred in it alongside his real-life wife Emily Blunt. ”I had this small idea for a sequel, but I didn’t think it would go anywhere. So, I said to the studio, ‘Just go do the movie with somebody else.’,” Krasinski told the audience at a Q&A attended by The Hollywood Reporter.
The actor, however, found it difficult to move past his own idea for the sequel — which he eventually revealed to producer Andrew Form of Platinum Dunes.
“They heard some pitches, and I told Drew about this little idea. And he told me to think about it a little longer. And then I thought, ‘This might really work.’ So, I’m currently writing the sequel,” he said.
A Quiet Place 2 is scheduled to hit the screens in May, 2020.
