We've known that a sequel to the smash hit nailbiter A Quiet Place was in the works, but today we found out that Krasinski is now writing the new film himself.

"The incredible people at [special effects company] ILM said 'How does the creature move?' and I said 'This is how I think he's gonna crawl", Krasinski says of the process behind going from leading man to horrifying mo-capped monster.

Krasinski spoke at a Q&A in Los Angeles yesterday at the Silver Screen Theatre, saying that he initially told Paramount to do the sequel with somebody else since he "had this small idea for a sequel, but I didn't think it would go anywhere". They heard some pitches, and I told [Andrew Form, producer] about this little idea.

Krasinski did exactly that, ultimately realizing that "this might really work". So, I'm now writing the sequel. In particular, Krasinski reworked the opening sequence, which was originally show in flashbacks, and came up with the backstories for the creatures.

"Nobody knows it, because I've kept it.", Krasinski reveals on the talk show, before motioning he had everything under lock and key.

Will we get some spoken backstory in Deux Placer Quietus, or will it again be left as an open-secret easter egg? We don't know much, but Krasinski certainly does.he is enjoying it enough not to want to step away from it.

Krasinski also revealed the rewrite he did for the first A Quiet Place, which was written by Bryan Woods and Scott Beck.
