A sequel to 'A Quiet Place' is in the works. The John Krasinski-directed horror movie has been a significant success at the box office, earning as much as $213 million worldwide, and Paramount has now confirmed that plans to make a sequel are already afoot.

Studio chairman-CEO Jim Gianopulos explained: "If you told me five years ago that an almost silent film starring the very funny guy Jim from 'The Office' would have been a hit at Paramount, I would have said, 'Well, I should go work at Paramount.'"

As well as being a box office success, 'A Quiet Place' - which also stars Emily Blunt - has also been well received by critics.

News of the sequel comes shortly after John revealed that the success of 'A Quiet Place' has made him feel like a "high school" kid.

John, 38, admitted he's still trying to process the praise showered on the film over the last few weeks.

Moviegoers are losing it over people making noise during A Quiet Place 

He confessed: "I'm still processing. I've been processing since that first screening at SXSW. It's like that high school feeling that you get when you think something's cool, but you hope other people also think it's cool, and the fact that other people think it's cool, it's now cool.

"Both myself and Emily are completely blown away by the reaction, and we honestly couldn't be happier."

Not everyone is happy with the news, however, with some fans taking to Twitter to question the decision to make a sequel.
