A Quiet Place II to Be Filmed in Buffalo this Summer

The Buffalo Niagara Film Commission confirmed Tuesday that “A Quiet Place 2” will film scenes in Erie County.

Production is slated to begin in July, with a release date scheduled for May 15, 2020.

“A Quiet Place” was one of the best-reviewed and top-grossing movies of 2018, earning $340 million worldwide on a $17 million budget. The film follows a family forced to live in silence, using sign language to communicate while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing in a post-apocalyptic world. Scenes were filmed in 2017 throughout Upstate New York, including in Little Falls (near Utica), Pawling, New Paltz and Beacon.

Actor, writer and director John Krasinski was spotted scouting locations near Buffalo last month.
