John Krasinski’s new horror movie A Quiet Place has officially landed a sequel.

The movie is set in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by creatures who hunt by sound. The story revolves around a family of four, starring Emily Blunt as a pregnant mother.

The horror feature has grossed $213 million worldwide and is rated an impressive 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. Based on the success of the film alone, it is not surprising that A Quiet Place has bagged itself a sequel.

Initially, A Quiet Place was intended to be a sequel of Cloverfield. Scott Beck, one of the creators behind the original conception of the film, told Slash Film:

“That was one of those things that, I guess it crossed our mind and we had spoken to our representatives about that possibility. It was weird timing, though, because when we were writing the script, 10 Cloverfield Lane was at Paramount.”
