Jeff Nichols Parts Ways With Next ‘Quiet Place’ Movie At Paramount

EXCLUSIVE: The next film in A Quiet Place universe will be looking for someone to take over directing reigns as sources tell Deadline Paramount Pictures and Jeff Nichols are amicably parting ways on the new Untitled A Quiet Place movie. Sources add that the director is pivoting to focus on the Untitled Sci-Fi project he is also developing at Paramount, which the studio is very high on.

Sources say top agencies are already submitting options for Nichols’ replacement and the studio will act fast as this film is still a high priority after Part II just became one of the bigger box-office hits of the year.

It is also known that Emily Blunt and Krasinski, would not reprise their roles in this installment.

Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce via Platinum Dunes alongside Krasinski via his Sunday Night banner with partner, Allyson Seeger, who serves as executive producer. A Quiet Place Part II the first post-pandemic theatrical-only release, earned $57 million in domestic box office grosses its opening weekend, has earned $297 million worldwide to-date, and garnered a 91% Rotten Tomatoes score.
