The March release of “A Quiet Place Part II” has officially been postponed due to increasing concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Director and co-writer John Krasinski announced Thursday on Twitter that he had decided to delay the film’s debut indefinitely. The highly anticipated sequel to Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt’s hit horror flick was originally slated to hit theaters on March 20.

“To all our A Quiet Place fans,” the “Office” alum began, “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together. Well due to ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that.”

“A Quiet Place Part II” picks up after the harrowing events of its predecessor, which follows Blunt’s and Krasinski’s characters as they fight to protect their children from vicious monsters without making a sound. The post-apocalyptic thriller, also written and directed by the “Jack Ryan” star, premiered in 2018 to rave reviews.

“As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie ... I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together!” he continued in his social media note. “So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!”
