Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond) has joined the cast of A Quiet Place 2. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will replace Brian Tyree Henry who had to leave the project due to scheduling conflicts.
Hounsou joins Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe who starred in the first film along with fellow franchise newcomer Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later).
John Krasinski who starred and directed the first film will return to write and direct the sequel. Details have been scarce, but it has been hinted that the new film will give more explanation as to where the strange sound-sensitive creatures from the first film originated.
A Quiet Place took theaters by storm last year earning more than $332 million in the international box office with $188 million coming from domestic box office earnings.
Brad Fuller, Michael Bay, and Andrew Form will produce A Quiet Place 2. The project began filming last month and is slated for release in May 2020.
