A Quiet Place: Day One Nabs Lupita Nyong'o To Star

A Quiet Place spinoff has found its star. Now titled A Quiet Place: Day One, the prequel will release on March 8th, 2024. The film is being directed by Pig's Michael Sarnoski. This is the spinoff that originally had Jeff Nichols in line to direct before he left the project last year. The release date for the film has been set as September 22nd, 2023. Starring in the movie will be Lupita Nyong'o. This next installment in the franchise is based on a story by John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two films. It is unknown if he or Emily Blunt would appear in this film, though that is not likely at this point. Deadline has the news of her casting.

A Quiet Place The Unlikeliest Of Franchises

Krasinski has been out there saying he has an idea that would turn the original two films into a trilogy, while Paramount is hoping that the spinoff would make A Quiet Place a universe they can continue to make films and more about. Who would have guessed that after seeing the first film? I would never have felt that the ending of that first film was a perfect place to end everything, and after seeing the sequel, that idea solidified in my mind.

That is not to say that it was a BAD film or that more films set in the universe are a BAD idea, but the second film felt pointless and without a purpose, and I worry that more would feel the same way. Since there is no way they do not continue the franchise at this point with how successful they have been, the ship has sailed in, hoping they come to their senses. More A Quiet Place is coming, even if it might not be a good idea. Casting Lupita is a great first step to changing minds, though.
