Emily Blunt has revealed that she knows "the basics" regarding the upcoming sequel, A Quiet Place 2, which is currently being written by her co-star and real-life husband John Krasinski - who also co-wrote and directed the first film. Upon release, A Quiet Place was a hit with moviegoers and critics, so it wasn't surprising when Paramount announced a follow-up to the post-apocalyptic horror-thriller, which is set for release in May 2020.
A Quiet Place was set in a post-alien-invaded world, where members of society struggle to live after the world is decimated by creatures hunting by sound. The film focuses on the Abbott family and their attempts to keep their children alive by suppressing the use of sound. Blunt stars as Evelyn, the matriarch of the family, while Krasinski starred as the patriarch, Lee. The rest of the cast included Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Leon Russom, and Cade Woodward. Not much is known about the upcoming sequel, but Blunt has stated she knows something regarding the project.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Blunt stated that she knows "the basics" about A Quiet Place 2, but what that includes is not yet known. Blunt joked that she knows everything regarding the sequel before making it clear that Krasinski is still hard at work on the script. However, once Krasinski has completed the script, she is very certain that she will learn more details. When asked about the sequel Blunt said:
“I know all; I know everything, No, I know enough. But he’s also writing, so he’s in that sort of vortex. And then I’m sure I’ll read stuff eventually. But I know the basics.”
No specific details about the story have been announced, but the one concrete detail that's been revealed about the project is that it will not be a traditional sequel. Krasinski has hinted that it could focus on a different family, but that doesn't mean Blunt and her other co-stars will not be featured, as there is always a chance for the Abbotts to return. Recently, Krasinski made it known that he would like to direct A Quiet Place 2 if everything goes accordingly, though this has yet to be confirmed.
A Quiet Place 2 is still over a year away from its theatrical release, and with the script not yet complete, fans should buckle up for a long waiting period before plot details are shared. While Blunt seems to know a bit more than the general public, it also appears Krasinski is keeping his plans under lock and key until the script is complete. Whether or not it can live up to the hype following the first film remains to be seen, but its odds seem hopeful considering the talent involved behind the scenes.
