A Quiet Place is getting a sequel.

Jim Gianopulos is the Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. He says Wednesday that the studio is developing a follow-up to the buzzy John Krasinski-directed thriller that's currently in theaters.

A Quiet Place has earned over $135 million from North American theaters in just over three weeks. It cost a modest $17 million to produce.
