Will there be sequels to ‘Cruella’ and 'A Quiet Place II'? Here's what we know so far

By , Audacy

While the summer hasn't officially started, the movie biz is already on fire.

After a blockbuster Memorial Day weekend box office, moviegoers can expect more editions of its top two films.

Both “Cruella” and “A Quiet Place II” are moving forward with new chapters after propelling last weekend’s box office to earning close to $100 million over the 4-day holiday period.

According to Variety, Disney is in the early development stages of a sequel to “Cruella.” While director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Tony McNamara are both expected to return, it is still unclear if Emma Stone will reprise her role as the titular character, the outlet noted.

Telling the origin story of the villainous Cruella de Vil, the film has earned more than $50 million globally, while also being available to stream on Disney+ via an additional $30 purchase.

Meanwhile, after taking the top spot at the box office, “A Quiet Place II” is also getting a third entry, but with some major changes, according to Variety.

John Krasinski will not return to direct as the reigns have been handed over to Jeff Nichols (Mud, Loving). Nichols is also writing the script, which will be more of a spinoff than a continuation of the storyline of the first two chapters.

The story is based on an idea by Krasinski, who will also executive produce the project.

No casting has been revealed, so it is unclear if Emily Blunt will return in any capacity to the franchise.

After being delayed over a year, “A Quiet Place II” rocketed to the top of the box office with $58 million and proved the movie industry was alive and well following pandemic shutdowns.

It remains to be seen if “A Quiet Place II” can hold on to the top spot as “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” is expected to open big this weekend.
