"I think I put my marriage on the line when I put her in the car," Krasinski previously told CinemaBlend "That's true. Like when I was explaining to her on set all the things that were going to happen and I said, 'You're going to hit this stunt man, that car is going to come three feet from you and then this bus is actually going to clock at 40 miles an hour,' her face fell and she went, 'But not really.' And I went, 'No, no, the bus is coming at you at 40 miles.' That's a real bus, and that bus hits that car and all that is totally real."

It was previously reported that Paramount had put a spin-off movie into development on a spin-off movie. At the time it was said that would Krasinski would not return with this third installment bringing in acclaimed director Jeff Nichols who previously directed features like Mud, Loving, Midnight Special, and Take Shelter. All that's known about the story is that it's based on an original idea by Krasinski.
