With production on A Quiet Place 2 now underway, we have the latest casting news in the form of one arrival and one departure. Deadline reported earlier today that Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Child’s Play remake) has dropped out of the movie, with Djimon Hounsou (Captain Marvel, Shazam!) being tapped to replace him. The departure of Henry is reportedly due to scheduling issues.
In April 2018, A Quiet Place was a hit at the box office, opening to a respectable $50.2 million and taking in over $340 million globally by the end of its run. Following that success, the studio was ready to move forward on a sequel with Krasinski only loosely involved, but it was later confirmed that the actor-filmmaker would indeed be back to write and direct.
Written and directed by John Krasinski, A Quiet Place 2 will star Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, Edge of Tomorrow), Cillian Murphy (The Dark Night Rises, Inception), Djimon Hounsou (Captain Marvel, Shazam!), Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe.
The film will hit theaters on March 20th, 2020 and production is now underway. Be sure to check back here on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this film in the coming months.
