John Krasinski can't and won't give up on more Quiet Place stories

The star (and director) John Krasinski took to the Jimmy Kimmel show to reveal that not only was he the face that ran the place, he also played the movie's terrifying sound-driven creature.

The film was directed by John Krasinski, who starred opposite his real-life wife Emily Blunt.

Cypriot airline Cobalt cancels all flights from Stansted
Britain's own Monarch Airlines entered administration a year ago in the biggest airline collapse in the country's history. Budget airline Cobalt has cancelled all flights after suspending operations overnight, leaving holidaymakers stranded .

Immediately upon its wide release this past April, the horror film earned universal acclaim and went on to earn $334.5 million on a reported production budget of $21 million. As he explained, Krasinski planned for the first film to be a one-time experience, despite the studio's quick moves to greenlight a sequel. "So, I said to the studio, 'Just go do the movie with somebody else, '" revealed Krasinski during the Q & A. "Then I had this small idea for a sequel, but I didn't think it would go anywhere". We've known that a sequel to the smash hit nailbiter A Quiet Place was in the works, but today we found out that Krasinski is now writing the new film himself.

But while the studio was taking pitches from other filmmakers, Krasinski's idea stayed with him and eventually he filled in producer Andrew Form of Platinum Dunes. "And he told me to think about it a little longer". Krasinski's thought is that they came to Earth via meteor, and though the first film doesn't address this out loud (or via a mime show), some boards in Krasinski's character's basement show what the backstory is. To help kick off the week's first show, Kimmel made a decision to invite Eminem to serve as the musical guest, who went on to perform his Kamikaze song "Venom".
