The filming “A Quiet Place 2” has created quite a stir in WNY.

The sequel, directed by John Krasinski (“The Office”), is being filmed in Akron over the next few months.

WIVB reports

Krasinki stopped by Akron’s Candy Apple Cafe in April while scouting filming locations, posing for a photo which was shared on Facebook over 600 times.


Candy Apple Cafe employee Kyle Faron said "that the filming has been drawing people into town."

“It’s brought in people from all over the place,” Faron said. “They hear about it on the internet and start telling their friends- you’ll see random tags from Indiana, Illinois, everywhere- it’s pretty cool.”

If you stop by Akron, this week you will see crews setting up street facades in advance of filming.

The president of Akron Chamber of Commerce is quite pleased.

“Seeing the film crew change the face of Main Street has been an exciting experience,” Holland said.  “The long term effects of having some of the film made on Main Street in our beautiful village of Akron will far outweigh any current minor inconveniences such as parking along Main Street.”

There have been rumors of Kransinski sightings in Orchard Park, Buffalo, and Clarence.

The film should be out in the Spring of 2020.
