The John Krasinski blockbuster hit A Quiet Place is now gearing up for a third film in the franchise. Deadline reported that Paramount Pictures has picked Jeff Nichols to write and direct the third film. This comes as little of a surprise after the global success of the first film and the anticipation for the second was high. John Kransinski wrote and directed the first and sequel, which was pushed to a 2021 release due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
While details of the third film have not been released it would be safe to assume that this would be a whole new story in the same universe. The concept of the films is that humans are being hunted by monsters that react to noise. The first film in the franchise kept the story isolated to a single family without going into major details of any others who have survived. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Nichols expand the universe that was created to tell different stories.
The third film in the franchise is expected to start production in the middle to late part of 2021 with a release sometime during 2022.

Jeff Nichols resume includes a variety of films that includes Midnight Special, Take Shelter, Mud, and Loving which are films he also wrote. His next big project he was working of was a multi-film adaptation of Alien Nation but was shelved when Disney bought out Fox.
Krasinski is still attached to the project as a producer even though his main character (spoilers) died in the first film. A Quiet Place, which starred Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt, became a global blockbuster, grossing around $340 million and set the mark for biggest opening weekend ever for an original horror movie.
