The horror movie A Quiet Place, which stars John Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt, is getting a sequel. The sequel was announced today at CinemaCon, just weeks after A Quiet Place opened to strong reviews and more than $200 million worldwide earlier this month.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount studio chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos said A Quiet Place's success was somewhat unexpected. "If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from The Office would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, 'Well, I should go work at Paramount,'" he said.

Krasinski and Blunt star as parents who, along with their two children, must stay silent to avoid creatures because the world is overrun by blind monsters that track you by sound only.

The movie reportedly cost $17 million to make, so the $213 million it's made worldwide means it has turned a very nice profit. For more on A Quiet Place, check out GameSpot's review.

A Quiet Place was directed by Krasinski from a screenplay by Scott Beck and Brian Woods. As of yet, there is no word on if the original team is staying together for the follow-up, nor are any plot details available.
