The success of John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place led writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods to get an opportunity to sit with Lucasfilm for what would have potentially been a Star Wars or Indiana Jones project. While the writing pair revealed that the talks hit a dead end as they were not enthusiastic about joining a pre-established franchise, the opportunity speaks in volumes about the holistic success of the film. Bryan Woods shared, “We went into Lucasfilm in the wake of A Quiet Place, and they wanted to talk to us about Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Moreover, we are like, ‘We wanna talk to you about, what is Star Wars before it was Star Wars?’ You guys have a responsibility to start a new franchise. That is where our hearts have always been, just trying to create original ideas.”
While A Quiet Place has been a brainchild of Krasinski who wrote and directed the movie, it was Beck and Woods whose script was passed by John Krasinski before the shooting. The massive box office hit of the movie has led to the announcement of a sequel. Apart from Krasinski’s pivotal role, writers Beck and Woods committed their time and skills in finding a unique horror tale that had not been told before. This search for new ideas has prevented them from being committed to the sequel of A Quiet Place too. Beck and Woods’ next project and the film is going to be Haunt, which will be releasing in theaters this Friday, September, 13. The movie is a Halloween based horror story which has been written and directed by Woods and Beck. The movie stars Katie Stevens Will Brittain and Lauryn Alisa McClain.
