A Quiet Place: Day One Begins Filming In What Looks Like NYC

John Krasinski confirms that filming is officially underway on the upcoming prequel.


The highly anticipated prequel to the A Quiet Place series, A Quiet Place: Day One, has begun filming. John Krasinski, who directed the first two movies and is producing Day One, shared a photo from the set alongside director Michael Sarnoski (Pig) and star Lupita Nyong'o.

"So honored to be there day one of A Quiet Place: Day One with the maestro Michael Sarnoski and legendary Lupita Nyong'o," Krasinski said. "Cannot wait to see what magic they conjure in this one!" It looks like Krasinski tagged the wrong Sarnoski in the Instagram post, however.

Based on the image printed on the clapper, it looks like Day One will take place, at least partially, in New York City. Given its title, Day One, the movie will probably dig into what happened the day the killer aliens came to Earth.

The first 10 minutes of A Quiet Place: Part II showed a brief glimpse at the frightening invasion day before a time-jump. But Day One looks like it'll be entirely focused on the past.

Following a delay, Day One is now scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2024. Another A Quiet Place movie to be directed by Krasinski is set for release in 2025.

A Quiet Place video game is also in the works. The two A Quiet Place films have collectively grossed more than $650 million at the box office.

As for the cast, Nyong'o won an Oscar for 12 Years A Slave and is also known for her roles in Jordan Peele's Us and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Joseph Quinn, who starred on Stranger Things, is also expected to appear in Day One.
