A Quiet Place Part II was due to release in less than 2 weeks, but John Krasinski has an update.

Hollywood is preparing for the Coronavirus pandemic by locking employees out of offices and forcing those with a cough to work from home.

As the virus takes a strong grip of thousands across the globe, cinemas, coffee shops and high street stores are taking a huge blow with the majority of countries begging anyone in a position to, to remain indoors and away from public gatherings.

The sequel to A Quiet Place is no different as Paramount Pictures and the creators behind Part II cease the upcoming release in North America on March 20, with thousands left disappointed after purchasing pre-release tickets in advance of a cinema viewing.

John Krasinski, the director of both films, made the announcement on social media, writing, “To all our A Quiet Place fans … One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together.

Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie… I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together! So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!”

Cinemas across the United States are yet to announce official closures due to the COVID-19 strain, but one fact is for sure; business is suffering. With the U.S. taking a strong stance on restricting travel from European countries into America, world trade for physical goods and public engagement events are becoming a serious issue for smaller businesses.

Paramount Pictures are yet to comment on a future release date.
