John Krasinski starred in and directed A Quiet Place after helping re-write an original script from Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. A sequel to the film is on the way, with Krasinski revealing he's begun toying with some ideas for the follow-up film.
"I’ve been tinkering with an idea for a few months and it just started to percolate and we’re all really happy about it," Krasinski shared with Entertainment Tonight.
Once the announcement of a sequel was made by Paramount Pictures, fans have wondered how Krasinski would be involved, with the above confirmation teasing that he'll be actively involved behind-the-scenes. Whether he is also directing the film or not, or making an on-screen appearance, is yet to be confirmed.
Additionally, it's unclear if Krasinski will be working on the script by himself or if he will be collaborating with Beck and Woods on the new film.
One of the film's producers, Andrew Form, made it quite evident that Krasinski was a key component for the film's success in a number of ways.

The minds behind the original script have already confirmed they have a wealth of ideas of the places the follow-up film could explore.
"It's such a fun world," Bryan Woods shared with Fandango. "There are so many things you could do."
Not only do Woods and co-writer Scott Beck have ideas for the future, but they revealed that not all of their ideas for the original film made the final cut, teasing that they could emerge in a future installment.
"There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer," Beck noted. "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?"
The sequel to A Quiet Place will land in theaters on May 15, 2020.1comments
