After A Quiet Place's massive critical and commercial success, a sequel was certainly anticipated, yet at certain moments, it appeared John Krasinki was only going to write it.

Deadline however is reporting that Krasinski will be directing the second film too. His wife, Mary Poppins Returns star Emily Blunt, will also be returning to the horror franchise.

Blunt's character – mother and wife Evelyn from the first Quiet Place – had a fate that was rather open-ended. Consequently, it's unclear what direction the second film will take story wise. Krasinki and Blunt have dropped hints though.

The rest of the cast is also in talks to return.

A Quiet Place 2 is slated for release May 15, 2020. Stay tuned for more as we hear it.
