Djimon Hounsou has is joined the cast of A Quiet Place 2. Hounsou has stepped in to take over for Brian Tyree due to a scheduling conflict. He joins returning cast members ing Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. Cillian Murphy has also joined the cast.
The sequel to the 2018 hit directed and written by John Krasinski has already begun filming. While the plot has yet to be released but Krasinski did have this to say:
I don’t even see it as a sequel,” Krasinski told the site. “Emily [Blunt] actually blew my mind by categorizing it the correct way after I pitched it to her. She said, ‘This isn’t a sequel at all — this is the second book in a series of books. It’s a widening of a world.’ And I thought that’s the best way to look at it. It doesn’t feel like a sequel — it’s a continuation of living in that world.” He continued, “I can’t wait to get in there and keep writing and see what this movie wants to allow itself to be. And that will happen in the script process and the shooting and the editing. But I think what’s cool about the second part of this movie is the same set of rules have to apply. I can’t just introduce a world where you can make a ton of sound, and if I did, there would have to be a reason for it. So it’s figuring out if there are smart and clever ways to do it.”
The first film, set in a post-apocalyptic world, centers on a family is forced to live in silence while hiding from monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing.
Hounsou has starred in a long list of fantastic films and series including Gladiator, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Aquaman, Shazam, and “Wayward Pines”. He’s been a busy man, he stars in several films that approaching their release date, such as Charlie’s Angels, The King’s Man, and What If…
