While “Without a noise” will soon be entitled to a third film, the universe created by John Krasinki will continue to develop with a video game scheduled for 2022.
Without a sound, the unexpected horror film
While we knew him mainly for his role of Jim Harpert in the series The Office, the comedian John krasinki surprised everyone in 2018 with his film Without a sound. A horror film that he directs and in which he plays, carried by a very interesting concept. Indeed, the feature film takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity was almost exterminated after the appearance of strange creatures. These are very sensitive to sound. To avoid attracting him, don’t make noise. This is how Evelyn and Lee live, with their daughter Regan and their son Marcus. In complete silence.
Produced on a “small” budget of twelve million dollars, Sans un noise was a huge success, achieving over $ 340 million at the global box office. What motivate Paramount and John Krasinki to develop a sequel. Released this summer, Without a sound 2 performed a little less at the global box office, with less than $ 300 million on a budget of $ 60 million, but in times of Covid.

The adventure continues with a video game
Whilea third film is already scheduled for 2023, with Jeff Nichols directing, we learn that the universe of Without a sound will continue to develop. Not with a series, but a video game. The site aquietplace.game has just appeared on the web and indicates a release for 2022. A Twitter account has also been created and a first tweet indeed announces the first official video game based on the franchise of terrifying blockbuster films from Paramount Pictures.
The tweet also specifies that it will bean untold story of survival. It will therefore not be a direct adaptation of one of the two films. But of a new adventure in the same universe. One can imagine that it will be necessary to embody new characters, with certainly some references made to the films. No details have been made on this subject for the moment.
Note also among the studios mentioned on the game site, the presence of Saber Interactive, who developed the video game in 2019 World war z and currently preparing Evil Dead: The Game (scheduled for February 2022). A studio that is therefore knowledgeable in horror film adaptation. In any case, given the agonizing atmosphere proposed by John Krasinki in Without a sound, we say that a video game will be a very good format to deepen the universe.
