John Krasinski‘s A Quiet Place II has been delayed due to concerns about the growing coronavirus pandemic like many other events over the past few days.
Originally set to be released by Paramount Pictures on March 18th, A Quiet Place II currently does not have a release date.
Paramount made the following statement:
After much consideration, and in light of the ongoing and developing situation concerning coronavirus and restrictions on global travel and public gatherings, Paramount Pictures will be moving the worldwide release of ‘A Quiet Place Part II,’” the studio said Thursday in a statement. “We believe in and support the theatrical experience, and we look forward to bringing this film to audiences this year once we have a better understanding of the impact of this pandemic on the global theatrical marketplace.”
Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, and Djimon Hounsou star in the sequel.
Part II finds the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) now facing the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
We’ll keep you posted.
