Brian Tyree Henry in Talks to Join 'A Quiet Place 2'
The first movie starred Blunt and John Krasinski as parents of a family who are forced to live in near-silence due to a threat from creatures who hunt by sound.
Krasinsk is returning to write and direct the sequel. However, since his character died in the first film, he won't be back as a cast member.
"A Quiet Place" was a smash success, earning over $340 million at the box office. The sequel is slated for March 20, 2020.
Henry's role has not been disclosed. Cillian Murphy is also boarding the movie as "a man with mysterious intentions who joins the family unit." Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are also set to reprise their roles.
Henry has been extremely busy. Aside from his Emmy-nominated turn in "Atlanta," he recently starred in "If Beale Street Could Talk" and "Widows." He can next be seen in "Child's Play," "Joker," and "Godzilla vs. Kong."
