John Krasinski detailed why he decided to turn back from his role of director in the upcoming Quiet Place part 3.
John chose another director, Jeff Nichols, in his place who will direct the third installment of the show.
On the Empire Podcast, John revealed, “Truly the only person I had in mind when asked whether I would hand this off was Jeff. I think he’s one of the best filmmakers, Mud is one of my favourite movies, and so real and intimate. It’s exactly the sort of paints we’re painting within A Quiet Place – very organic characters you fall in love with.”
He added, “I pitched him my story, he’s gone and developed the world on his own with that jumping-off point, and I’m so thrilled. He’s actually just turning in a script now, and I loved it. I absolutely loved it, and I can’t wait to see him shoot this thing.”
In the year 2018, John not only directed but also wrote and featured in Quiet Place.
The sequel was a huge hit in the box office, the biggest collection during the pandemic era and a massive earning of $48 million.
A Quiet place sequel opened in around 3726 venues in North America.
