Paramount Pictures has opted to delay the highly anticipated sequel, A Quiet Place Part II, once again (via The Hollywood Reporter). The film was initially delayed last year from its original scheduled opening of March 20, 2020 to September 4, 2020. Then it was pushed from September 4 to April 23 of this year. THR reports that the film has now been pushed further into 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It will now arrive on September 17.

Paramount delaying the film comes after a slew of recent major tentpole feature delays from studios such as Walt Disney Studios, Sony Pictures, and MGM/UA (for No Time to Die). THR’s report noted the delay for No Time To Die was expected to spark another wave of major film release delays.

The sequel is written and directed by John Krasinski, and it stars original cast members Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. New to the sequel are Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou. The first film grossed $340.9 million worldwide off of a $21 million budget.

It should be noted that the current release date for A Quiet Place Part II should be seen as more or less of a placeholder due to the still ongoing pandemic.
