The Hollywood Reporter broke the news last night, which was announced yesterday by Paramount studio chief Jim Gianopulos as he outlined the studio's film upcoming film slate at the Cinemacon theatre owner convention now happening in Las Vegas.

The John Krasinski-directed thriller has brought some much-needed box office success to Paramount after a rather bleak 12 months.

A Quiet Place sequel is a no-brainer, considering the amount amassed by the film, which totaled to $213 million worldwide and close to $135 million in North America. Screenwriters Bryan Woods and Scott Beck have said they have plenty of material for a sequel.

The studios chairman-CEO Jim Gianopulos made the announcement at CinemaCon, reported Variety. The almost dialogue-free movie centres on a family (led by Krasinski and his real-life wife, Emily Blunt) as they struggle to survive in a world of monsters that hunt by sound.

The film costarred Krasinski's wife Emily Blunt.

As yet, no production start or release date has been revealed. The film reportedly cost $17 million to make.

Chatting to Fandango, they said that "it's such a fun word". Things get even more complicated when the couple find out that they are expecting another baby.

There was a rumor that A Quiet Place could have been a Cloverfield sequel, as the sci-fi franchise is also a part of Paramount's library, but producer Brad Fuller has since debunked that.

As many people have noted, the first film only scratched the surface of the universe in which the characters live. "So, yeah, there are certainly so many stories you could tell". For his part, Krasinski is now attached to direct the sci-fi thriller Life on Mars for Paramount. In the meantime, you can still catch the first film in cinemas now.
