We’re still a couple of months out from A Quiet Place Part II, but writer/director John Krasinksi is talking about the possibility of a third film. Krasinski spoke with Total Film Magazine (per Games Radar about the upcoming film and was asked if there are plans for a third entry.

“I set up a couple of tiny little Easter eggs in II that not only explain more about [Part I], but would allow for more mythology,” Krasinski said. “But, being a Boston Catholic, I can’t be like, ‘Yeah, of course, there’ll be a third!’ No, not at all…I haven’t heard from the studio that they want a third one. But the good news is that the studio and I are on the same page in that this isn’t one of those franchises where we keep pumping them out if they make money. I think we’ve proven that this is an original idea that is really beloved by people in a way that… I don’t want to break that promise to people.”

Krasinski did note that he has not ruled it out, saying, “But if I could think of a way to continue this world as elegantly as people deserve, because they gave me their trust in watching this movie and loving this movie as much as they did? Sure. But if you’re asking: do I think I could just do a third one, to just do a third one? No way.”

A Quiet Place Part II is set to release on March 20th, 2020. It stars Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds, Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou and is described as follows:
