Paramount continues to delay its biggest titles as the effects of the global pandemic continue to take a toll on the industry.
2022 had been a promising year so far for fans of A Quiet Place, the horror series that introduces a world where its inhabitants can make no sounds for fear of enduring a grisly end at the claws of terrifying monsters. First, director Michael Sarnoski was brought in to direct the spin-off, originally set to release next year. Sarnoski is the helmer of the wonderful Nicolas Cage-headlined movie, Pig, which augers well for a spin-off film set in the world of A Quiet Place.
Then, back in April, Paramount revealed the title for the project, and it most likely made fans even happier.
If you were a fan of the terrific flashback sequence from the A Quiet Place Part II, the title of the upcoming A Quiet Place: Day One, suggests that we’ll be getting a whole movie that will focus on the arrival of the sharp-eared monsters on Earth. As we’ve already said, 2020’s sequel featured a sequence that focused on the alien’s first appearances and it was spellbindingly good, so if we’re to get a whole movie based around that premise, it’s doubtful that there’ll be too many complaints from fans.
However, the run of good news ends here, with today’s announcement that Paramount is delaying the film into 2024.
We’ve already seen the studio delay some of its biggest hitters like Top Gun: Maverick and Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, and like Transformers, the GGI-heavy A Quiet Place: Day One seems to have fallen victim to a logjam in the post-production process, likely a lingering side-effect of the global pandemic. Instead of releasing in September of 2023, the film has now been pushed back into March of 2024, meaning we won’t be seeing it for what feels like a very long time.
John Krasinski, director of the first two films is also working on a third entry in the mainline series. Krasinski’s film isn’t expected to arrive until 2025 though. We’ll bring you more details on this one as we hear it, but as it stands, it will be some time before we see another entry in the franchise, though this will surely serve to sharpen the appetite of fans ahead of an expected brace of films in 2024 and 2025.
