A Quiet Place’s writer-director and a father of two daughters with Emily Blunt –John Krasinski previously told Collider that he made this movie for his kids as they couldn’t watch the horror, “A Quiet Place” due to its adult themes. “Imaginary friends are adorable and all those things, but they’re also time capsules of your hopes, dreams, and ambitions when you were the most fertile of a brain, and it never goes away. I think we’re told that we’re adults instead of what if you realize that you never stopped being a kid,” he said.
The film is slated for a May release in 2024.
