If you, like us, are still struggling to catch your breath after the ninety minutes of butt-clenching tension that is 'A Quiet Place', you'll either be delighted or dismayed to hear that a sequel is already in the works.

John Krasinski's directorial debut has been a huge success both critically and commercially, and Paramount chairman Jim Gianpolous announced yesterday at CinemaCon that the studio was developing the next installment. “We’re thrilled to say that we’re already working on the sequel to A Quiet Place,'” he told the room.

It's not yet clear whether the sequel will focus on the same storyline and family, and even if Krasinski - who co-wrote the screenplay with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck and is currently attached to direct sci-fi thriller 'Life on Mars' for Paramount - will be involved. However, Woods and Beck had previously said that they had plenty of material left over from the first screenplay that could potentially be used elsewhere.

The film cost $17 million to make and has already grossed over $213 million at the worldwide box office.
