John Krasinski officially directing A Quiet Place sequel, Emily Blunt also to return

John Krasinski is returning to direct the untitled sequel to Paramount's horror hit "A Quiet Place". He was already on board to write the sequel.

[Spoiler alert] Events didn't play out so well for Krasinski's Lee Abbott, but this officially reunites him with Blunt, whose deal to come back for the sequel is also official, according to Deadline. Since then, the film has won several awards, including the Screen Actors Guild Award for Blunt in the supporting actress category.

Paramount announced in August that it had dated the sequel to "A Quiet Place" for May 15, 2020. The pic was expected to open around $30M, and over-performed its domestic tracking with a $50.2M opening, and final stateside of $188M, $340M WW. All this time, we'd kinda been operating under the assumption that A Quiet Place 2 would focus on a completely different cast of characters, perhaps one of the other survivors hinted at in the original.

The dazzle of A Quiet Place: It was largely a near dialogue-less screenplay where sound was the motivating fear factor.

It has since been nominated for a Sound Editing Oscar for Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl's work on the film.

Spoilers for A Quiet Place ahead: the first film ends with Blunt dramatically cocking a shotgun and ready to kill the aliens that are invading her family's farm.
