Earlier this year, the sci-fi horror thriller A Quiet Place took the box office by storm, pulling in nearly $330 million worldwide and garnering praise from critics and audiences alike. The suspenseful film left things a little open-ended for the possibility of a sequel, and not long after the film hit theaters, Paramount Pictures ordered a sequel. The good news is that they’re not rushing the sequel into production.

A Quiet Place producer Andrew Form has been making the press rounds since the movie hits Blu-ray and DVD on July 10 (it’s already available on digital download), and he discussed how the A Quiet Place sequel is coming together so far. Thankfully, the original film’s director and star, John Krasinski, is still involved.
