Production[edit]

Paramount Pictures released the first film, A Quiet Place, in the United States and Canada in April 2018 and grossed $50.2 million on opening weekend, well above a mid-$20 million forecast. Later in April, Paramount Chair and CEO Jim Gianopulos announced that a sequel was in development. (The first film ultimately grossed $188 million in the US and Canada and $340.9 million worldwide.)[1] John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first film, said he considered it "as a one-off" but that with the sequel planned, he started considering the larger fictional universe to explore possibilities.[2] By August, Krasinski was writing the film, and a director had not been hired yet.[3] According to Krasinski, Paramount rejected pitches from other writers and directors that were considered too franchise-oriented, and the studio invited him to write a script based on his "tiny idea that fit that world and could be exciting".[4] Cinematographer Polly Morgan described the sequel's approach, "It's more about the children growing up, exploring the world and learning to protect themselves."[5]

By February of 2019, Krasinski was hired to direct the sequel, and actors Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe were confirmed to reprise their roles.[6] In March, Cillian Murphy joined the cast.[7] In the following June, Brian Tyree Henry joined the cast,[8] but he left the film due to scheduling problems. He was replaced by Djimon Hounsou in August.[9]

In June 2019, production began on the sequel.[10] Filming officially commenced on July 15, 2019.[11] Filming took place throughout Upstate New York, including Erie County and one of its villages, Akron. Other locations included the city of North Tonawanda and the hamlet of Olcott in Niagara County,[12] and Barcelona Harbor in the town of Westfield in Chautauqua County.[13] Filming also took place on a sound stage in Buffalo, New York. One of the last filming locations, the northbound South Grand Island Bridge, was shut down for 13 hours for filming.[14] The production invested over $10 million in Upstate New York, created 400 hires, and involved 300 background actors.[15] By late September, production was finished.[16]
