John Krasinski's A Quiet Place is set to get a spin-off helmed and penned by Jeff Nichols, the director of Midnight Special. 

The untitled spinoff will be linked to the events in the 2018 hit horror movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Krasinski, who directed and co-wrote 2018's well-received outing, along with its sequel which is tipped for release next year, came up with the idea for the new story, and will also produce along with Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

A Quiet Place follows the story of a family trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world in which creatures with heightened hearing used sound to devour humankind.

A Quiet Place Part II was originally scheduled to open in March of this year, but the release was postponed several times due to theatre closures and coronavirus lockdowns, and it is now scheduled for release now on April 23, 2021.

The sequel, which features Cillian Murphy, sees Blunt's character Evelyn and children Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and Marcus (Noah Jupe) tiptoeing through the post-apocalyptic landscape as they try not to alert the terrifying noise-sensitive creatures from the first film.

However, things don't go to plan - and that's where Murphy's character comes in.
