Set on a desolate homestead where a father, mother, son, and daughter must live lives of utter silence so as to not attract a sound-sensitive supernatural evil that lurks in the surrounding forest, A Quiet Place, from John Krasinski, aims to haunt us with hushed tones. Dialogue-free, this film is already terrorizing theatergoers with its trailer as real life husband and wife, Krasinski and Emily Blunt, play the couple who must keep their children safe while not not making a peep.
John Krasinski’s directorial career is about take a sharp turn with “A Quiet Place.” The film finds Krasinski leaving behind his more indie sensibilities and fully embracing a studio psychological thriller. The movie is largely silent as it tells the story of a family living remotely on a farm who are forced to remain quiet as to avoid a supernatural entity that responds to noise.
A Quiet Place is a 2018 American supernatural horror film directed by John Krasinski. The film stars Krasinski and Emily Blunt. The film will premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival as the opening-night film on March 9, 2018. It is scheduled to be commercially released by Paramount Pictures on April 6, 2018.
A Quiet Place is directed by John Krasinski, who also stars in the film, which was produced by Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes. Screenwriters Scott Beck and Bryan Woods began writing A Quiet Place in January 2016. Krasinski read their spec script in the following July, and it appealed to him with the concept of parents protecting their children, especially since he and his wife, actress Emily Blunt, had had their second child at the time.
Blunt encouraged him to direct the film. By March 2017, Paramount bought Beck and Woods’s spec script. The studio hired Krasinski to rewrite the script and to direct the film, which was his third directorial credit and his first for a major studio. Blunt read Krasinski’s draft and asked Krasinski if she could be cast opposite him in the film. Krasinski and Blunt were cast in the starring roles in the film.
Production took place in 2017 from May to November. Most filming took place in U.S. state of New York in Dutchess County and Ulster County. Filmmakers spent $18 million in the region, including a purchase of 20 tons of corn which they hired local farmers to grow. Some filming took place on a soundstage in the town of Pawling in Dutchess County as well as on-location in the county’s city of Beacon. Outside Dutchess and Ulster counties, filming also took place on Main Street in Little Falls in Herkimer County, New York.
A Quiet Place will premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival as the opening-night film on March 9, 2018. It was selected from 2,458 submissions. Paramount Pictures will release the film in theaters in the United States on April 6, 2018.
