According to Deadline, Paramount has hired Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special) to write the script and direct the upcoming spin-off. While any specifics on the plot or potential casting is currently unknown, it is being reported that the third movie’s storyline is “based on an original idea by John Krasinski.” Therefore, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the third title is not a straight sequel, but rather a separate storyline that broadens the world created in the original film with a new set of survivors attempted to stay alive from the monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing.
Although Krasinski won’t be behind the camera for the third instalment, the writer/director will be producing the spin-off under his Sunday Night banner, with Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller producing via Platinum Dunes. The third A Quiet Place title is currently slated for a 2022 release date.
