John Krasinski Shares First On-Set Photo of 'Quiet Place' Sequel
etonline.com: A Quiet Place Part II is officially underway!
On Monday, John Krasinski, the film’s director and co-writer, tweeted out the first photo from the set of the highly-anticipated sequel. Instead of the film’s full title, the clapboard simply reads, "Part II," alongside a small black-and-white image of the homestead from the original film. Also included is "Roll 01, Scene 1, Take 1," revealing that the project has just started filming.
"I’ve been tinkering with an idea for a few months and it just started to percolate and we’re all really happy about it," he told ET in September 2018. A few months later, he revealed that he was hard at work on the sequel’s concept.
"I'm writing it right now, that's all I am. I'm right there, I'm just sort of thinking about it," he told ET in October at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival. "It's one of those things where I didn't know that I'd want to be a part of it at all, the sequel, because we loved the first one. We thought it was a one-off type of deal. But you reach that place where you realize that it's not a character or a group of people, it's a world that you get to explore."
The first film centers on a family living in almost complete silence in order to evade huge blind creatures who hunt exclusively by sound. Although [spoiler alert] Krasinski’s character, Lee, doesn't survive, his wife, Evelyn (Emily Blunt), his daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), son Marcus (Noah Jupe) and their newborn do somehow make it through film’s nerve-jangling final moments.
