High-concept, low-budget hit A Quiet Place laid out a particularly harrowing vision of the apocalypse.

Stalked by alien creatures with hyper-sensitive hearing, the silent world of the Abbott family (lead by real-life husband and wife John Krasinki - the movie’s director - and Emily Blunt) was crushingly tense and claustrophobic.

Once it became a smash - it made nearly £270 million on a tiny £13 million budget - a sequel was inevitable, and now we're getting some steer on what the story might involve.

New cast-member Brian Tyree Henry let slip a few key ideas that will be explored in an interview with Observer.

“We’ll see more of that family continuing to survive and finding out that they’re not the only ones,” he said.

“And I think that we’re also going to get a few answers to the origin of where and how this whole thing happened. I think that people want to know that.

“But I think you’re just going to see another side of it… more of humanity that survived this thing in this next story.”

It's notably not mentioned how the alien apocalypse came about in the first movie, so there could be some storyworld expanding going on here.

Blunt will be joined once again by young stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, while Irish actor Cillian Murphy is signed up too.

It's due for release on March 20, 2020.
