Soaring to the top of the box-office this weekend and scoring excellent reviews, John Krasinski’s horror film “A Quiet Place” has been enough of a success that talk of a sequel has already begun.
Funnily enough, it seems the film’s scribes Bryan Woods and Scott Beck already have a handful of ideas for a follow-up. Speaking with Fandango, Beck says he and Woods have plenty of stories and set pieces they didn’t use that could be tweaked for a sequel:
“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?”
Kosinski himself also re-wrote the pair’s script, making some adjustments such as the sand paths, but the most notable change was he ditched flashbacks that were in the original script. Producer Andrew Form tells Heat Vision:
“Initially, there were flashbacks where the characters talked. Also, the sibling’s death was handled in a flashback. John was adamant that we get rid of it, making it present day and kept the urgency of the storytelling.”
“A Quiet Place” is now out in cinemas everywhere.
