Lupita Nyong’o is set to star in the new film A Quiet Place: Day One. Nyong’o, 39, is in final talks for the ‘A Quiet Place’ spinoff at Paramount.
Day One is based on an idea by John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two ‘A Quiet Place’ films. The spinoff will be directed by Michael Sarnoski, known for his directorial debut, ‘Pig’. Krasinski and his wife, actress Emily Blunt, are not expected to reprise their roles from the first two films. In addition to the spinoff, there is a third film in the Quiet Place series slated for release in 2025.
The original A Quiet Place opened in 2018 and was followed by A Quiet Place Part II in 2021. The franchise takes place in a post-apocalyptic world populated with monsters with hypersensitive hearing.
