Sarnoski will direct and write “A Quiet Place” spin-off based on a story from John Krasinski, according to the publication. Krasinski directed and starred in “A Quiet Place” opposite his wife, Emily Blunt, and directed the sequel, “A Quiet Place Part II”.
The spin-off takes place in the same world as the previous two movies but will not see Blunt or Krasinski reprise their roles as the matriarch and patriarch of the Abbott family, respectively.
“A Quiet Place: Day One” premieres March 8, 2024.
