Turns out it’s a very big week for film sequel news. First it was announced that there’s going to be a Chicken Run 2, and now it’s been revealed that there’s another The Quiet Place film in the works.

So those of you who’ve spent every night since watching the first film losing sleep wondering what on earth happened after that mega cliffhanger at the end may be in luck.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount studio chief Jim Gianopulos announced the news at CinemaCon and told the audience: “If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from The Office would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, ‘Well, I should go work at Paramount.”

The film, directed by John Krasinski and starring Emily Blunt, has made $213 million at the worldwide box office so far.

One of the screenwriters, Scott Beck, recently opened up about potential storylnes of a sequel to Fandango, saying: “There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer.”

“So, yeah, there are certainly so many stories you could tell. It’s just really, at the end of the day, who are the characters in this and what does this situation mean to that dynamic?”

It is not yet clear whether John or Emily will be involved in the sequel, but we’ll keep ya updated.
