John Krasinski on ‘A Quiet Place’ Sequel: ‘I’ve Mapped Out an Idea’

John Krasinski is well on his way to making the sequel to “A Quiet Place.”

“I’m writing it now,” Krasinski told Variety Sunday at the 10th annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards. “I’ve mapped out an idea and hopefully it’s good enough to shoot … Paramount’s been unbelievably supportive and I’m just excited to have a second one and so we’ll see how it goes.”

Krasinski was on hand to present to his sound editors Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van der Ryn. “Sound was everything to our movie,” Krasinski said. “I couldn’t have made this movie without them. Any sort of attention I get from the movie I owe to them. So I’m happy to be here for them.”

Presented by Los Angeles Confidential magazine and held this year at Exchange LA, the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards recognize talent behind the scenes.

“He knows the field really well. It’s almost like a coach that’s played,” Jake Gyllenhaal said of friend and fellow actor Paul Dano while presenting the Breakout Director award to Dano for his work on their film “Wildlife,” which Gyllenhaal produced and starred in. 

“He’s really empathetic and sensitive to what’s going on,” Gyllenhaal said, “It was also funny because his way of directing is very much like the way his acting is. There’s an intensity, a meticulous quality, and he’s hyper-prepared as an actor, which is what I experienced in scenes with him. And that happened also with his directing.” 

Dano shared some details about how Gyllenhaal got involved in the film. He wrote the first draft of “Wildlife” while the two were shooting 2013’s “Prisoners.” “So he had known about it, but he was actually too young then at that point so it wasn’t on my mind.”

Also receiving awards were “On the Basis of Sex” screenwriter Daniel Stiepleman; “BlacKkKlansman” film editor Barry Alexander Brown; “The Hate U Give” director George Tillman Jr.; “Bohemian Rhapsody” producer Graham King; “A Private War” cinematographer Robert Richardson; “The Sisters Brothers” producer Alison Dickey; “Avengers: Infinity War” visual effects supervisor Dan DeLeeuw; “First Man” costume designer Mary Zophres; “Roma” director Alfonso Cuarón, and “Boy Erased” original songwriter Troye Sivan.

Presenters also included Ryan Gosling, Rami Malek, Elizabeth Olsen, John C. Reilly, Regina Hall, Felicity Jones, Jamie Dornan, Rosamund Pike, Marina de Tavira and John David Washington.

“Veep” star Tony Hale played host, entertaining the crowd with a few good quips. “Our next presenter and I did an episode of ‘ER’ together in 2009,” he giggled as he introduced Angela Bassett. “I think it meant a lot more to me than it did to her.” 

Bassett presented the award for production design to Hannah Beachler for her work on “Black Panther.”

Presenting the award for costume design to Mary Zophres was “First Man” star Ryan Gosling.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege to work with Mary three times now,” Gosling said of Zophres. “In the end, Mary’s work was so exacting that she even garnered the NASA seal of approval.” 

Presenting the producer award to Graham King for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Rami Malek shared a story about being cast as Freddie Mercury.

“Even without all the rockstar performances, Freddie was a very complex dude. I’d like to thank Graham for trusting me with the role of such a unique and revolutionary artist,” Malek said.

Troye Sivan also had a story to tell when accepting the original song award for “Revelation” from “Boy Erased,” a film about conversion therapy in which he had a starring role.

“Before I came out to my family, I think had someone come to me and said…I can fix this for you, I really believe I would have taken them up on that offer,” Sivan said of his personal reasons for joining the project.  “Once I was done filming the movie I just wanted to get so much off my chest, and did it the only way I knew how, which is through music,” Sivan said. “We wrote this song in 30 minutes. It really wrote itself.”
