A Quiet Place: Day One Spin-Off is Underway

The very successful A Quiet Place film franchise is due to return to theatres early next year, and it was just announced that the film would be a prequel that will take place before the deadly alien invasion begins.

At CinemaCon, Paramount Pictures officials stated that the prequel will be named A Quiet Place: Day One and will recreate the events of the fateful first day the aliens arrived on Earth. The prequel will hit theatres on December 20th. No additional information about the spinoff’s plot have been divulged.

It was revealed in a flashback scene in last year’s sequel, A Quiet Place Part II, how Lee (John Krasinski) and Evelyn Abbott’s (Emily Blunt) first day in their little town had gone — during which an asteroid-like object hurtled from the sky – that the first day had gone.

The characters and concept of the spinoff are unclear at this time, but the title suggests that it will follow a new group of survivors during the early days of the invasion of alien beings that can detect the slightest disturbance. The first moments of the invasion were shown in the opening scenes of “A Quiet Place — Part II” last year.

After impressing audiences with his debut movie, Pig, Michael Sarnoski signed on to direct the new spinoff in January. He took over for Jeff Nichols, who had been affiliated to the project for about a year until departing the project last October. According to some, Sarnoski’s idea was “different” from the work of director and actor John Krasinski on A Quiet Place and its sequel. However, it was in keeping with the general tone of the franchise.

The release date for A Quiet Place Part III is set for 2025. There has been no announcement on whether John Krasinski would return as director. A Quiet Place video game is also under development. The two A Quiet Place films have made over $650 million at the box office.

During the epidemic, A Quiet Place Part II was a tremendous box office hit, grossing over $100 million in US ticket sales within 15 days of its release.
