“A Quiet Place: Part II” is coming out in less than three months. Let that sink in.
- Paramount moved the project hours after Universal moved “F9” — the ninth film in the “Fast and Furious” series— from May to June, according to Variety.
Director John Krasinski confirmed the news in a tweet: “They always say good things come to those who wait. Well ... I think we’ve waited long enough.”
“A Quiet Place: Part II” was one of the first major films to delay its release because of coronavirus fears last March. As I wrote about before, the film was delayed because of fears that the coronavirus would spread across the world.
- Krasinski said at the time: “To all our ‘A Quiet Place’ fans, one of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together. Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie ... I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together! So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon! #AQuietPlace2...Take2.”
The decision came less than 24 hours after Utah Jazz stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell tested positive for the coronavirus. That was also when Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson also tested positive for COVID-19.
One year later, signs are looking up for “A Quiet Place.”
