The next instalment of the A Quiet Place franchise, which is not the next sequel after A Quiet Place: Part II but rather a spin-off of the series, is taking an exciting step forward.

After Jeff Nichols left the spin-off project in October, fans were nervous about if and when it would move forward, but Paramount Pictures appears to have found a replacement already.

Deadline reported that Pig director Michael Sarnoski is in talks to helm the as-yet-untitled spin-off, and possibly also write the script.

The movie is based on an idea from John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two films in the franchise, and is thought to set up a Quiet Place universe much like Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which Paramount can build on and produce more and more content for in the future.

Though it has not been confirmed, it is thought that neither Krasinski nor co-star Emily Blunt would be reprising their roles in the spin-off.

Krasinski will be producing, along with production company Platinum Dunes' Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

No potential actors have been pegged for the spin-off yet, and not much is known about the plot other than that it's being set within the same world as A Quiet Place.

This comes after news that the franchise will be expanding beyond film and into video games. Games company Saber Interactive and developer iLLOGIKA have unveiled plans for an upcoming video game set in the universe of A Quiet Place.

An announcement from Saber read: "The first official video game set in the terrifying A Quiet Place universe will deliver an original story and gameplay that captures the compelling suspense, emotion and drama for which the series is famous."

The video game is due to be released later this year, and is designed to "let fans experience the tension of the films with a level of immersion they've never felt before," iLLOGIKA's creative director Hervé Sliwa said.
