After a strong showing at the box office for A Quiet Place Part II, Paramount announced the date for third entry in the horror franchise for March 31, 2023. Midnight Special director Jeff Nichols will take over from John Krasinki as director, with a story based on an idea by Krasinski. Nichols handed in the script for the new installment, which is more of a spinoff than a threequel, just days ago, Krasinski told Rotten Tomatoes’ Erik Davis.
For those unfamiliar with Nichols, he won the Cannes Critics Week prize for his 2011 sci-fi movie Take Shelter, which premiered at Sundance. His 2016 sci-fi thriller Midnight Special was the story of a father on the run with his son, who has special powers and is being pursued by the government and a secretive cult.
In its opening weekend, A Quiet Place 2 grossed a healthy $58 million. A Quiet Place 2 finds the Abbot family, who were terrorized at home in the original film, venturing into the post-apocalyptic outside world where they realize that creatures that hunt by sound are just one of the threats awaiting them.
