Whatever you do, try not to scream. John Krasinski just teased that filming for the A Quiet Place sequel has already begun.
Yup, almost a year after the release of A Quiet Place (Krasinski's directorial debut), the former star of The Office posted a photo of the sequel's first clapperboard to Twitter.
"#PartII," he captioned the post. Simple, yet effective.
The original film, released last summer, told the story of a post-apocalyptic world where humans are hunted by fast-moving creatures. The only way to survive? Stay silent. Tough ask for a family of five with three young children. The 39-year-old actor starred as the patriarch of the Abbott family alongside his on-screen and off-screen wife, Emily Blunt.
Krasinski is returning to write and direct the new film, along with Blunt, 36, who will reprise her role as Abbott family matriarch, Evelyn. Actors Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are also set to return as Regan and Marcus, the couple's two children.
According to the Hollywood Reporter and The Wrap, Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) and Brian Tyree Henry (If Beale Street Could Talk) are also in talks to join the cast, though not much else is known about the project’s plot at this point.
"The reason I decided to go back, in the end, was this world is so rich, and it’s so much fun to explore,” Krasinski said in a December 2018 interview with Deadline. “There are so many different things to see now. Everyone else in the world is experiencing this, so I’m curious to see what that looks like from another perspective.”
You can catch A Quiet Place 2 in theaters on March 20, 2020.
