The writers of A Quiet Place already have ideas for a sequel

Paul Moore

No surprise. It’s the best pure horror in years.

After storming the box-office to earn more than $50m in the States alone, it comes as no surprise to see that A Quiet Place has really left its mark with film fans and that talk of a sequel is gathering pace.

Aside from the fact that the film has stopped people from eating popcorn in the cinema, John Krasinki’s horror really resonated with people due to its superb premise, nerve-shredding set-pieces and strong performances.

If you haven’t seen the film then consider this to be your spoiler alert warning.

A Quiet Place

As Emily Blunt’s character racks up that shotgun, it’s clear that these monsters aren’t gone for good and two of the writers of A Quiet Place, Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, have been talking about the potential of a sequel.

In an interview with Fandango, they said: “It’s such a fun world. There are so many things you could do. There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer. So, yeah, there are certainly so many stories you could tell. It’s just really, at the end of the day, who are the characters in this and what does this situation mean to that dynamic?”

Throughout A Quiet Place, there were small hints that this monster attack was on a global scale – remember Lee (Krasinski) desperately sending an S.O.S message via the radio and scratching off the names of cities that didn’t respond? We also never learn why the monsters are here and what’s their purpose on Earth.

You could also argue that there must be pockets of civilisation out there somewhere – most likely in ‘A Loud Place’ because as the scene at the river/waterfall showed, the monsters don’t attack human beings if their sounds can be cloaked by something that’s louder.

Given the fact that A Quiet Place a critical darling that’s also making good money at the box-office, we expect to see those monsters making even more noise in the years to come.

In case you missed it, here are our interviews with the stars of the film, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.
