John Krasinski's horror film "A Quiet Place" is doing really well in the box office at the moment so the filmmakers clearly went and thought 'heck if it's doing so well, we'll make another'.
Paramount chairman-CEO Jim Gianopulos announced the sequel news at CinemaCon:
If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from 'The Office' would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, 'Well, I should go work at Paramount.'
Niiiice. There's no release date yet, since it's early days and the first film is still making money at the box office.
"A Quiet Place" only cost about $17 million to make and has earned more than $213 million so far, worldwide.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "A Quiet Place" screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck said they have plenty of material leftover for a sequel.
