There was quite some uproar when Jeff Nichols left A Quiet Place spinoff project, but that hasn’t deterred Paramount Pictures from finding a replacement. It looks like their search has finally come to an end, as hot off of his success with the Nicolas Cage-led film Pig, director Michael Sarnoski is in negotiations to take over the project. It’s still a mystery what the project will be about, as it’s mainly based on an idea from John Krasinski that won’t continue the storyline from the previous two entries.
Currently, Paramount Pictures is hopeful that this new entry in the franchise might expand a new cinematic universe in the vein of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Extended Universe. They also hint that Emily Blunt and Krasinski are set to return, which hints at this storyline potentially acting as a prequel to the events that kicked off the franchise’s main storyline.
It’ll be interesting if they have enough to work with to create an entire universe, especially with the limiting concept that defines the reason it has its name. Though, it would be funny if we start getting spinoffs with different titles that change out the “quiet” in A Quiet Place. With a director in final negotiations, it hopefully means we might get some information in the near future.
