John Krasinski is returning to direct the still-untitled sequel with Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe reprising their roles. Cillian Murphy is the new addition to the cast.

The sequel is scheduled to be released on 20 March, 2020.

A Quiet Place, which released last year, followed an isolated family of four forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. Krasinski directed and starred in the film, which grossed $340 million worldwide. He also wrote the screenplay with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck.

Plot details of the sequel are being kept under wraps.
