The upcoming “A Quiet Place” movie isn’t expected to pick up where Part 2 left off with Emily Blunt’s character Evelyn Abbott and her children.

Instead, the upcoming film is described more as a spin-off than a threesome. It’s based on an original idea by actor-filmmaker John Krasinksi, who wrote, directed, and starred in the franchise’s first two installments. Plot details for the next episode are being kept under wraps at this time.

Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are all returning to produce the film for Platinum Dunes. Krasinski will also produce through his Sunday Night banner, with partner Allyson Seeger serving as executive producer.

“A Quiet Place 2” was the first pandemic-era release to air only in theaters, earning $57 million in its opening weekend. To date, the film has grossed $297 million internationally.

The franchise is set in a dystopian universe where people are forced to live in silence in order to escape monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing.

Back in Sarnoski, he recently directed “Pig”, with Nicolas Cage. He also directed episodes of the television series “Olympia” and “Fight Night Legacy”. (ANI)
