Emily Blunt and John Krasinski were reluctant to make ‘A Quiet Place 2’

Blunt and her husband, John Krasinski, weren’t sure about doing a sequel to A Quiet Place. Blunt told Variety that she and Krasinski had their reservations. According to the publication, Krasinski wasn’t certain he could produce a film that was as successful as the first one. “We were both really reluctant and unnerved at the idea of trying to do another one,” Blunt told Variety. “A lot of people came into the studio and tried to pitch ideas and we were both like, ‘We’re not going to do it.’”

Fortunately, Krasinsky had a change of heart a few months after the release of A Quiet Place. “I had this small idea, which was to make [Millicent Simmonds] the lead of the movie,” Krasinski told Variety. “Not only did I think she would give an amazing performance, which I knew she could do, her character opens the door to all the themes I was dealing with in the first movie.” Blunt told the publication she agreed to do a second installment of the film after learning what the opening sequence would be like.
