There are plenty of solid horror movies on the horizon – It: Chapter Two and Child’s Play, just to name a few – but if you were to look into what’s coming out next year, you might want to keep your eye on A Quiet Place 2. The follow-up to the 2018 original will see John Krasinski return to the director’s chair, with his wife, Emily Blunt, reprising her role as Evelyn Abbott. It’s not entirely sure if the children from the first film are making a comeback, but it looks like both Cillian Murphy (who played Dr. Crane/Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy) and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Child’s Play) have officially joined the cast.

So far, Krasinski has kept quiet about what he has planned for the sequel. As opposed to focusing on plot and characters though, it seems he’s more keen on exploring the world that the first film introduced us to. In fact, a recent report from Bloody Disgusting seems to back this up.

Speaking to IndieWire, Brian Tyree Henry shed some light on what viewers can expect when A Quiet Place 2 hits theaters next year. Unfortunately, we still don’t know much about the actual story, but it looks like the movie will shed some light on the origin of the apocalypse.

“I think that we’re going to get a few answers to the origin of where and how this whole thing happened,” Henry explained. “I think that people want to know that. But I think you’re just going to see another side of it…more of humanity that survived this thing in this next story.”

Whatever angle the film takes, it looks like Krasinski will have to live up to the high expectations set by the original, which racked up $340 million at the box office – on a budget of $17 million – and was praised as one of the best horror films of the year. We’ll find out if A Quiet Place 2 can deliver when it hits theaters on May 15th, 2020.
