Following the success of the film, a sequel was announced in April 2018. John will only be appearing in flashback sequences in the movie, but Emily will be reprising her role from the first film.

A Quiet Place II had its world premiere in New York City on March 8. Paramount Pictures initially planned to release the film on March 18 but had to delay it due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt were reluctant to do the sequel

After the surprising success of A Quiet Place, Paramount Pictures immediately started developing a sequel. However, director John Krasinski admitted that he initially had reservations.

John told The Daily Californian: “Basically, the studio asked to do a sequel and I very quickly said no. I wanted no part of doing a sequel because I never thought that I could match the experience that I had on the first one or … articulate (the same kind of) organic storytelling.”

At the red-carpet premiere of the movie in New York City, Emily told Variety: “We were both reluctant and unnerved at the idea of trying to do another one. A lot of people came into the studio and tried to pitch ideas and we were both like, ‘We’re not going to do it.’”

Three months after the release of the movie, John changed his mind and agreed to write and direct the second installment.

How did John convince Emily to star in the sequel?

It was reported that 17-year-old deaf actress Millie Simmonds will emerge as the heroine in the sequel.

John told Variety that he “had this small idea, which was to make [Millie Simmonds] the lead of the movie.”

“Not only did I think she would give an amazing performance, which I knew she could do, her character opens the door to all the themes I was dealing with in the first movie,” he added.

Although the movie will not center on Emily’s character, she said she agreed to do the film after learning about its opening sequence.

“He pitched me the opening and I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ [It was] undeniably great, and I realized I would have been an idiot not to want to be in that opening sequence,” she told Variety.

How much was Emily paid for A Quiet Place II?

Emily, who has a net worth of $25 million, was reportedly paid $12 to $13 million for her role in A Quiet Place II, according to Variety.
