John Krasinski Has An Idea For A Quiet Place 3

While out on the promotional trailer for horror thriller sequel A Quiet Place: Part II, John Krasinski has talked frequently about how he hadn't planned to make a follow-up, but had cracked the idea after hearing pitches from others once studio backers Paramount asked if he'd bring a second film for life. And now, according to the writer/director, he's ready if there's a third.

"It’s interesting, I genuinely hadn’t thought about a second one when I was doing the first one. However, I really had these questions while I was doing it," Krasinski tells Collider. "I put the fires out in the distance in the first one, and I always thought to myself, 'Wouldn’t it be cool if we got to explore where those fires lead to? Who’s on the other end of those fires?' But I never thought that there would be a sequel. So then when I actually came around to writing the sequel, I started with the fires. And so this time, I think when my brain started wandering of questions of what would this mean later on, I started to write down notes in case I could prepare myself for a third one."

Given the success of the original and early positive buzz about the new film – which continues the story of Emily Blunt's Evelyn Abbott and her young family, with the focus shifting to the kids as they try to survive a post-apocalyptic world where hyper-hearing creatures hunt humanity – it seems likely he'll be deploying those notes before too long.

A Quiet Place: Part II will be out on 20 March.
