Deadline is exclusively reporting that Jeff Nichols is set to write and direct the third film in A Quiet Place franchise at Paramount Pictures, based on an original idea by John Krasinski.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, so we’re not sure whether it will be a direct continuation of focusing on the Abbott family, or if it will broadened the world that the 2018 film introduced, placing audiences into a post-apocalyptic world where survivors are struggling to stay alive by being as quiet as possible, as monsters with ultra sensitive hearing hunt them down.
The original film was a box office hit for Paramount, made on a budget of $17m it earned $340m worldwide, also earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Sound Editing.
