Writer and Actor Emily Blunt reveals initial surprise over the huge success of A Quiet Place

With the sequel to A Quiet place only a few months away, Emily Blunt recently revealed her initial surprise over the incredible success that the first film turned out to be. Blunt who wrote the film as well as acted in it spoke not only about the commercial success of the film but also about all the conversations that it began.
 
In a recent interview, the actress said: "I was gobsmacked. Not only by just how many people went to see it and then told their friends to see it, and then it had this meteoric life that was not expected by me. But also the very deep metaphorical themes that people pulled out of it, some of which were intended and some of which really weren't. They found it really involving and exciting."
 
Adding to her excitement she also revealed more behind the scenes knowledge about the sequel. She said, "I wrote the first one to be one thing, and then when it did well and (the studio) were like, 'We're going to do a sequel', I thought, 'Great. Go find someone else. It'll be great. Enjoy it."
 
Emily Blunt starred in the film alongside her husband John Krasinski who also directed the film. Blunt is now ready to come back for the sequel which is all set to release on March 20 this year.
