With her character Regan Abbott having just about survived a bear trap snare in Part II, plus the ever-present danger of the aliens, Simmonds doesn't seem too convinced that she'd make it very far in another sequel.
Asked by Metro if she's worried for Regan's future safety, she explained: "Oh, for sure, absolutely! I was still healthy and doing well so I definitely thought, 'What might happen to myself or maybe another character?'
"We even thought, 'What could be worse than a bear trap?' So yes, I definitely have serious concerns about a third."
Recalling her conversations with co-stars, Simmonds went on: "It's funny because Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and I actually had several in-depth discussions about what we thought might happen, or what could be, and there was a lot of joking that went along with that.
"As for a third film, at this point, I haven't heard anything about it."
Take Shelter and Mud director Jeff Nichols is handling the directorial reins instead of John Krasinski on a spin-off film focusing on different characters, which should be a fascinating collision of mind and material.
"Truly the only person I had in mind when asked whether I would hand this off was Jeff. I think he's one of the best filmmakers, Mud is one of my favourite movies, and so real and intimate," Krasinski commented.
"It's exactly the sort of paints we're painting with in A Quiet Place – very organic characters you fall in love with.
"I pitched him my story, he's gone and developed the world on his own with that jumping-off point, and I'm so thrilled."
A Quiet Place Part II is out now in cinemas.
