With the number of coronavirus cases rising around the world, and restrictions on large gatherings and international travel becoming more prevalent, Paramount Pictures has delayed the release of A Quiet Place Part II.
Previously slated to come out on March 20th, A Quiet Place Part II has now been taken off Paramount's release schedule. While a new release date has yet to be announced, Paramount shared the following official statement (via The Hollywood Reporter), sharing their hope to release the sequel to 2018's A Quiet Place sometime this year:
"After much consideration, and in light of the ongoing and developing situation concerning coronavirus and restrictions on global travel and public gatherings, Paramount Pictures will be moving the worldwide release of A Quiet Place Part II. We believe in and support the theatrical experience, and we look forward to bringing this film to audiences this year once we have a better understanding of the impact of this pandemic on the global theatrical marketplace."
Writer/director John Krasinski also shared a message about the film's postponement on Twitter:
