Jeff Nichols’ ‘A Quiet Place’ Spinoff Set For March 2023

While we haven’t heard anything from Paramount on a sequel following the massive box office success of A Quiet Place Part II, they’re ready to set a date for the franchise’s expansion from Midnight Special director Jeff Nichols.

Paramount has confirmed Jeff Nichols’ untitled A Quiet Place film for March 31st 2023. Details on the film are still being kept hush-hush, but it is definitely not the third chapter in the Abbott family’s story. Instead, it is a spinoff set in the same post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters that hunt using their accute sense of hearing.

Nichols will write and direct based on a story idea by John Krasinski. This will be Nichols’ first film since 2016’s Loving.  While there’s still no casting, one has to assume that Michael Shannon will be involved in some way since he’s starred in every Nichols film to this point.
