John Krasinski Passes The Reins Of ‘A Quiet Place III’ To Director Jeff Nichols
John Krasinski, director of the A Quiet Place franchise, has passed the reins for a third installment onto writer and director, Jeff Nichols.
Krasinski co-wrote the screenplay and directed the last two films as well as starring in the first alongside his wife, Emily Blunt.
Now, according to an article by Empire, John Krasinski is ready to pass on the responsibility of a third installment.
“Truly the only person I had in mind when asked whether I would hand this off was Jeff,” admitted Krasinski.
“I think he’s one of the best filmmakers. Mud is one of my favourite movies, and so real and intimate. It’s exactly the sort of paints we’re painting with in A Quiet Place – very organic characters you fall in love with. So he was my first choice for this.”
“I pitched him my story, he’s gone and developed the world on his own with that jumping-off point, and I’m so thrilled. He’s actually just turning in a script now, and I loved it. I absolutely loved it, and I can’t wait to see him shoot this thing.”
Asked if the next installment would continue to follow the Abbott family or instead be a spin-off, Krasinski answered: “Who knows! I’m really excited about the third installment because it’s going to do something that we haven’t done before.”
A Quiet Place II is currently in cinemas, grossing over $100 million in the US and Canada box office.
It’s reception from critics and audiences alike has been hugely positive, achieving a score of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
