A QUIET PLACE Prequel Delayed To 2024

The upcoming A Quiet Place prequel will be headed to cinemas later than planned, per Paramount Pictures' calendar reshuffle.

Previously known as Untitled A Quiet Place, the new title A Quiet Place: Day One was revealed earlier at CinemaCon. Though initially scheduled to release on September 22nd, 2023, the horror film has since been moved to March 8th, 2024. Plot details are scarce, but one imagines the A Quiet Place prequel will finally let us know how the sound-sensitive aliens/monsters of the franchise came to throw humanity into turmoil.

Day One will see John Krasinski step back as director and let Pig's Michael Sarnoski take the reins, though the franchise creator is staying on as a producer alongside Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller.

Another Krasinski title affected by the Paramount calendar shuffle is If (elsewhere known as Imaginary Friends) the fantastical comedy film starring Ryan Reynolds and which was moved back six months to May 24th, 2024. Krasinski writes, directs and stars, alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Cailey Fleming, Fiona Shaw, Steve Carell, Alan S. Kim, and Louis Gossett. It tells the story of a man who can communicate with people's imaginary friends and prevent them from turning evil.
