Cillian Murphy discusses what to expect from A Quiet Place Part Three
There may be two more movies set within the world of A Quiet Place on the way.
Nobody expected A Quiet Place to be as successful as it was.
Not only was it critically acclaimed (96% on Rotten Tomatoes), but the teeny-budget horror (by Hollywood standards) of $17 million racked up a massively impressive $340 million worldwide, so it should come as no surprise that sequels were immediately discussed.
Everyone who survived (and even some who didn't) have come back for A Quiet Place Part II, with John Krasinski returning as director.
Krasinski has also provided the story for an upcoming spin-off, that is currently in the works with director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Loving), but we shouldn't expect the story of A Quiet Place to end here.
JOE was lucky enough to chat to Cillian Murphy in the run-up to the release of A Quiet Place Part II, and among the many topics in discussion were conversations about those upcoming sequels.
Much like the first movie's sorta-cliffhangery ending, A Quiet Place II definitely leaves us wanting more, so we asked Murphy if there were any discussions about where the story might go next.
He told us: "I think there will be another one. What [writer/director John Krasinski] has done is so elegant, in that he has started tiny with the story, and then expanded it a bit bigger, and a bit bigger, and I guess the next one will be slightly bigger.
"Whereas, normally, it starts huge, y'know, like the White House gets blown up or something like that and then it comes [down]. Whereas he's done the opposite, and you are gradually kind of fed little crumbs about what happened and why the situation is the way it is, and that is brilliant.
"So yes, I think it is definitely set up for more. How they'll do it? I have no idea."
A Quiet Place Part II will debut on the big screens here on Monday, 7 June.
