[Video] ‘A Quiet Place’ Writers Share the Original Visual Look Book They Used to Pitch the Film

Horror

Years before it arrived in theaters and scared up over $300 million and even an Oscar nomination, writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods were tasked with pitching Paramount on A Quiet Place, a post-apocalyptic script centered on a family’s fight for survival against monsters who hunt by sound. To do so, they created a visual look book to convey what they had in mind.

Over on Twitter this week, Beck and Woods have shared that original pitch video.

They write, “Three years ago, before Paramount bought the spec script for #AQuietPlace and months before John [Krasinski] & Emily [Blunt] came aboard, we created a visual look book to help sell the studio. A few fun discrepancies here from the final film. Also note our push for practical creature fx, ala ALIEN.”

Beck and Woods added in a subsequent tweet, “Just realized we used nearly the same font for the title treatment as the Paramount marketing campaign did years later! Prophetic!
