Feb. 23 (UPI) -- John Krasinski has confirmed via Twitter that he is returning for the sequel to his 2018 horror film A Quiet Place.
Krasinski co-wrote and directed the first movie. He also co-starred in it, alongside his real-life wife, actress Emily Blunt. It followed a family forced to live in silence in a post-apocalyptic world where blind, but noise-sensitive monsters kill anything they hear.
"Time to go back. #PartII 5-15-20," Krasinski tweeted Friday, along with a photo of the house from the film.
Variety reported Krasinski will direct the follow-up, and Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds are in talks to reprise their roles.
Krasinski's character, the family's patriarch, died protecting his children in the first movie.
Blunt won a Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance.
