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 Krasinski 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 Krazinski’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 the upcoming sequel 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 Part II release date is still undetermined.
