Do not make noise or you will die. That is the simple sentence of, a movie that cost $ 17 million and raised more than $ 340 million worldwide.
With such figures, it was obvious that Paramount Pictures, the producer of the tape, would ask for a sequel. John Krasinski, writer and director of the film, said he was not very happy with the idea of a continuation, but understood that it was inevitable.
In a podcast of The Ringer, Krasinski explained why he changed his mind: "I am realistic. I have always liked the idea of seeing everything from the perspective of others, and I understand it completely. When you are a studio and you have a success like that , you want another one. (A sequel) was not our intention or study, but I understand why. "
Krasinski, known for playing Jim Halpert in, he told The Ringer that he agreed to give Paramount an idea for other directors to work with her, however, the sapling became a script: "I had this little idea and my producer, once again, was very smart and said : 'Will you write it so you can give it to these coming filmmakers?' and I said, 'yes.' And then, after about three weeks, he said, 'Why don't you just write this and then we get another director?' and, of course, with his speech Jedi He tricked me into signing the sequel. "
What is the sequel about?
TO Quiet Place It tells the story of a family hiding from murderous creatures, with a highly developed sense of hearing. Staying silent is the best strategy to survive, but the presence of a newborn and a deaf daughter (who, therefore, is not fully aware of the noise), makes the task difficult.
Will the sequel follow the same formula or change the focus? "The idea is quite simple," Krasinski said to the Deadline portal in 2018. "I am writing it, I don't have it detailed yet, but the thought that emerged in me, which is what really excites me, is that most of the sequels it's about the return of a hero or a villain. You take this character that people loved, you bring it back and you have to create this whole new world around them. That's where they fail. "
"We have that same scenario. We have the world, but you can shoot whoever you want and everyone will feel connected. The reason I decided to come back, in the end, is that this world is too rich and it is very fun to explore. There are so many different things to see now. Everyone in this world is experiencing it, so I'm curious to see how it looks from another perspective, "said the director.
Blunt, who is a real-life wife of Krasinski, gave other clues to Entertainment Weekly (EW) in November last year: "Somehow, the idea of seeing who these people were before all this happened It would be interesting, but I am not very sure because I think it is really the next chapter now and what will happen next. I think people feel very interested in this family… I think it’s such an open book right now, and certainly for John, who is looking at things with laser while we talk. "
Millicent Simmonds, who plays the eldest daughter of the Abbott, also spoke with EW and presented three views to retake the film: "One would be looking to the past, how did the aliens come up? The other involves a different family that deal with the same problems as the Abbott. The third idea would be the future: how is the world after, once the children are older? Or what about the aliens or how do we improve or solve that problem? "
"I think we will also have a few answers about the origin of where and how this happened," revealed one of the signings for the sequel, Brian Tyree Henry in statements to the Observer newspaper in June 2019. "I think people want to know that, but you're also going to see another perspective … More about the people who survived this in the next one," he added.
Tyree Henry explained that the survivors of the first installment will find out that they are not the only ones. This would be the pretext for the signing of the movie bomb signing: Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy would play an individual very interested in being part of the family that survived in the first installment.
For now, it is not known if he will repeat all or part of the cast of the original film, while Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) and Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) for the new delivery, although without officially defined roles.
This is the cast of To Quiet Place:
- Emily Blunt (Evelyn Abbott). She is a doctor, wife of Lee Abbott and mother of Regan, Marcus and Beau.
- John Krasinski (Lee Abbott) She is the husband of Dr. Abbott, father of Regan, Marcus and Beau.
- Millicent Simmonds (Regan Abbott). She is the deaf daughter of Lee and Evelyn, and the older sister of Marcus and Beau.
- Noah Jupe (Marcus Abbott). He is the son of Lee and Evelyn, and the brother of Regan and Beau.
- Cade Woodward (Beau Abbott). He is the youngest son of Lee and Evelyn, the youngest of the Abott brothers.
Now, on October 20, during his 40th birthday, Krasinski used a trick to draw attention to a charity he supports. His tweet was addressed to actor Chris Pratt ().
"Taking advantage of his birthday, he made a wish list and among them he wrote this:" Hey @prattprattprattpratt Do you remember that you were a fan of To Quiet Place? I will literally put you digitally in #Part II if you make a donation! #JKbday. "Says the message of the social network.
The message received an immediate response: "First … Happy Birthday! Second, I will donate @familyreach for your birthday. Everyone who reads this should analyze it and donate if possible. And finally … You don't have to put me in "A Quiet Place II"Except that… okay! Yes! Please do it!"
While filming is over, it would not be impossible for, thanks to the advances of special effects, to introduce a cameo from Pratt. In any case, we will have to watch the movie to confirm it.
Krasinski shared a photograph on September 25 with his wife – on tape and in real life – Emily Blunt, where we see how Abbott marriage crosses the famous bridge of the first film.
"Well … with this we finish (A quiet place) Part 2. See you in March 2020! "The director wrote in the message. In this way, he confirmed the advance of the release date.
The filming of the tape began in July 2019 and the movie theater debut was planned for May 15 next year. However, Deadline was the first to claim that Paramount had changed the date of arrival, by March 20, 2020.
