Producer John Krasinski has shared some behind-the-scenes images from the first day of filming A Quiet Place: Day One
Filming has officially begun on the A Quiet Place spin-off A Quiet Place: Day One – and producer John Krasinski has taken to social media to celebrate the start of production by sharing a batch of behind-the-scenes images! You can check them out in the Twitter embed at the bottom of this article. As Krasinski mentioned in his post, the film stars 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o. She is joined in the cast by Joseph Quinn – better known as Eddie Munson from the most recent season of Stranger Things – and Alex Wolff (Hereditary).
Krasinski directed the previous two films in this franchise himself, but for A Quiet Place: Day One he has passed the helming duties over to Michael Sarnoski, director of the Nicolas Cage drama Pig (watch it HERE).
Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special) was attached to write and direct A Quiet Place: Day One for a while, but when he dropped out he was replaced by Sarnoski. The story does take place in the same world established in the first two movies, but apparently doesn’t involve the Abbott family, the characters we followed through the two movies directed by John Krasinski.
Details on the plot of A Quiet Place: Day One and all of its characters are being kept tightly under wraps. This is a separate project from A Quiet Place Part III, which Krasinski will be returning to direct. Paramount has A Quiet Place: Day One scheduled for a March 8, 2024 theatrical release, and A Quiet Place Part III will follow in 2025.
Deadline’s sources said that after seeing Pig and being blown away by the film, Krasinski was quick to put Sarnoski on the short list of directors to take a meeting for the project. While insiders say Sarnoski’s vision for the film was still his own and different from what Krasinski had done with the first two, he still gave a pitch that fit the tone of the world they had created and felt he was the perfect fit for their next installment.
Krasinski is producing A Quiet Place: Day One under his Sunday Night banner, while Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller produce through their company Platinum Dunes. Krasinski’s Sunday Night partner Allyson Seeger serves as executive producer.
