He will return to directing duties, according to Deadline, while Blunt will also return to star.

A Quiet Place won rave reviews from critics, who praised its near completely dialogue-less screenplay, with a heavy emphasis on sound.

Krasinski and Blunt played parents trying to survive with their children in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by blind monsters with acute hearing.

Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl earned Oscar nominations for the sound editing on the film, while Blunt won a Screen Actors Guild Award for best supporting actress.
