A Quiet Place Spin-Off Movie Is Coming in 2023 from Mud Director Jeff Nichols

Unlike its put-upon survivors, A Quiet Place Part II is currently making a lot of noise at the box office, and unsurprisingly Paramount has now put in place plans for a third movie set in director John Krasinski's terrifyingly whispered world. The movie, which for now we shall call A Quiet Place 3, has even been given a release date of March 31, 2023.

Fresh off a pandemic shattering opening debut weekend, A Quiet Place Part II will now be followed by A Quiet Place spinoff film set to be released in 2023.

Director Jeff Nichols’ ‘A Quiet Place’ Spin-Off Film Dated For March 2023 By Paramount

Following a terrific box-office opening weekend for “A Quiet Place Part II”— nearly $60 million over the Memorial Day Weekend—Paramount Pictures has carved out a March 2023 release date for a third ‘Quiet Place’ film.

Instead, this third film, dated for March 31, 2023, will be the mooted ‘A Quiet Place’ spin-off from director Jeff Nichols (“Midnight Special,” “Loving“).

‘Alien Nation’ Update: Jeff Nichols Turned His Film Remake into a 10-Episode TV Pitch

Jeff Nichols, the filmmaker behind movies like Take Shelter, Mud, and Midnight Special, is one of the best directors who isn’t quite a household name yet. But his next planned project, a big budget remake of the 1988 sci-fi buddy cop film Alien Nation, seemed poised to launch his career to the next level.

Jeff Nichols Plans to Turn ‘Alien Nation’ Into 10-Episode Series

Jeff Nichols’ plans for an “Alien Nation” remake fell apart following Disney’s acquisition of Fox, but the project may find new life as a television series. Nichols discussed his “Alien Nation” plans during a recent interview on the Team Deakins podcast, where he stated he was working on adapting the 1991 sci-fi film into a 10-episode television show. Nichols noted that he was approached by Fox to remake the film but said Disney killed the project in 2019 after the company acquired the competing studio.

Jeff Nichols Says His ‘Alien Nation’ Remake Is Becoming A Miniseries

It’s been a couple of years since we heard anything about Jeff Nichols’ planned Alien Nation remake. The Midnight Special director was brought on in 2016 to redo the 1988 sci-fi film, but in 2019 it fell victim to Disney’s acquisition of Fox. However, even at the time it was made clear that Disney wasn’t writing the project off entirely, and now Nichols says it is still very much alive, just in a different form.

Jeff Nichols Has Turned ‘Alien Nation’ Into A 10-Episode Series & Hopes Disney Will Make It

Back in 2016, it was reported that Fox had tapped “Take Shelter” director Jeff Nichols to remake the 1988 sci-fi neo-noir buddy cop film “Alien Nation” which starred James Caan, Mandy Patinkin and Terence Stamp and told the story of a veteran cop and the first extraterrestrial cop working in L.A. Sadly, the project became one of many victims of the Disney acquisition of Fox. Now, Nichols is ready to give “Alien Nation” another go, having turned his script into a 10-episode mini-series he hopes 20th Century Studios greenlights.
