Without a doubt the talk at the movies this weekend was the success of the original Paramount’s horror film A Quiet Place. The film was directed by John Krasinski who also starred in the film alongside his wife, Emily Blunt. The film earned a 97% “certified fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an 86% audience score. It earned over $50 million giving it the title of second-best opening ever for an original horror film.
What makes this film interesting is that it was almost part of the Cloverfield franchise, but the plot was deemed to similar to 10 Cloverfield Lane. But it looks like A Quiet Place could launch it’s own franchise. Fandango spoke with screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck about possibly doing a sequel to the film. Woods said, “it’s such a fun world, there are so many things you could do.”
“‘Definitely…There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer,’ Beck added. ‘So, yeah, there are certainly so many stories you could tell. It’s just really, at the end of the day, who are the characters in this and what does this situation mean to that dynamic?'”
By the looks of it both of the screenwriters would be up to work on a sequel to A Quiet Place, and with the numbers so far it would be a mistake for Paramount not to jump on the opportunity. Hopefully, a sequel could follow up with something just as thrilling. Have you had the opportunity to watch A Quiet Place? Would you be up for a sequel? Let us know in the comment section below!
