The horror sequel has been bumped in the night.
Upcoming horror spin-off A Quiet Place: Day One is heading to theaters on March 8, 2024.
Originally announced last year, the upcoming spinoff was expected to debut later this year. Although it’s technically the third in the Quiet Place franchise, it’s not a sequel to A Quiet Place Part II. Instead, it’s an original film based on an idea by John Krasinski. Pig director Michael Sarnoski will helm the project.
Although it’s clearly tied to the rest of the Quiet Place franchise, neither Krasinski nor Emily Blunt will reprise their roles in the film. Unfortunately, the cast hasn’t yet been revealed, and neither have details about the film’s plot, although the “Day One” aspect of its title appears to suggest that this is a prequel in some way.
A Quiet Place: Day One, which was previously untitled, was originally intended to debut on September 22, 2023, with the film’s original release date revealed alongside the release date for the main series sequel, A Quiet Place Part 3. But Paramount’s latest reshuffle reveals that it will be released in 2024, alongside a number of other schedule changes.
The studio’s upcoming film IF, directed by John Krasinski, has been pushed to May 24, 2024, after setting an initial release date of November 17, 2023. Additionally, The Tiger’s Apprentice has been nudged back to January 19, 2024, instead of its earlier release on December 20, 2023.

When it comes to A Quiet Place, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to, with both the spin-off and A Quiet Place Part III coming in the next couple of years.
IGN’s review of A Quiet Place Part II called it “a highly exciting and well-acted follow-up. Director John Krasinski and Co. broaden the world of A Quiet Place with a larger cast, bigger action set-pieces, and more monster scenes but thankfully, as big as the sequel goes, the film never loses sight of the emotional intimacy between the characters that made the first movie work so well.”
A Quiet Place Part III is being worked on by John Krasinski, with the script credited to Scott Beck and Jeff Nichols. Krasinski is thought to be directing the sequel, but this has not yet been confirmed.
