First Day of Filming “A Quiet Place 2” Announced

The Paramount trucks have been roaming around town. The sets are almost done. The shooting dates have been set in stone.

The first round of shooting is going to start on July 15 and run through July 19. Second round will be July 22-24. Keep these dates in mind as parts of Main St and the surrounding areas will be closed off. The Newsteader will do our best to keep info updated on road closures and such.


There is an open casting call for A Quiet Place 2! They are looking for all races/ethnicities/everyone for extras.

Be at Akron School THIS Saturday June 22 between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. You need to be over 18, and bring a picture. Pictures will not be returned.

Residents of Main St will be getting special ID cards so they can get in and out while shooting is happening. No one else is going to be allowed in. They are shooting spoilers here, and you could wreck the movie for literally millions of people.

Main St businesses will remain open. The Newsteader will get more info about that in the next few days. -JAP-
