A Quiet Place was one of 2018’s surprise hits – a tense thriller featuring a young family trying to survive in a world where terrifying blind but noise-sensitive creatures hunt anything that makes a sound.
A Quiet Place Part 2 – releasing 19th March 2020, brings back director and screenwriter John Krasinski behind the camera, and picks up where the first film left off.
Distributed by Paramount Pictures, the second installment will witness the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe) tackle terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence.
Here’s what you should know about A Quiet Place Part 2:
Due to depiction of terror and bloody images, it can be presumed that the movie’s rating in the Middle East will end up being PG-15.
John Krasinski is back in the director’s chair. Krasinski successfully shook his public persona as The Office’s Jim Halpert with A Quiet Place (2018), and is now respected as a masterful horror filmmaker of suspense that few directors working in the genre today seem to have.
This time around, Krasinski is not just the director, but also the sole credited writer on the sequel’s screenplay with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck credited only as the creators of the characters from the original film. This adds yet another level of control for Krasinski.
While John Krasinski isn’t reprising his role from the first movie, due to his character’s shocking death, the other three leads from the original – Emily Blunt returns as Evelyn Abbott, Millicent Simmonds as Regan Abbott and Noah Jupe as Marcus Abbott.
New Cast Members
Actors Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou will be joining the cast.
Murphy is well known for his starring role as Tommy Shelby in the crime drama series Peaky Blinders, while he’s been seen on the big screen in Christopher Nolan movies such as Dunkirk (2017), Inception (2010) and The Dark Knight trilogy. Hounsou has appeared in both Marvel and DC movies such as Captain Marvel (2019), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), and as the Wizard in Shazam! (2019).
