John Krasinski in A Quiet Place

Paramount Pictures

The sequel to the surprise hit horror film of the year still needs a script, but John Krasinski is hard at work.

The "A Quiet Place" writer, director, and star recently told Variety that he has "an idea mapped out" but noted that he's still in the writing process.  In fact, he said that he hopes it is "good enough to shoot," making it clear that a lot still needs to happen between now and the film being made.

Krasinski didn't reveal any specifics about his idea, but in the past, he's discussed possible directions for "A Quiet Place 2." One idea that he talked about in May was potentially exploring the stories of other people who survived. During a Deadline interview at the time, he referenced a moment in the film where the audience can see fires in the distance.

"Where my mind kept wandering as we were making it, was the question of who was on the other end of those fires, when the father lights the fire and in the distance those other fires light up," Krasinski told Deadline. "How did those people survive? How did that old man survive?"

It's possible those questions will be answered in Krasinski new script, but as he pointed out, this may still not be the version that gets made.
