By the end of writer/director John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place, the surviving members of the Abbott family looked to have quite the fight on their hands. And considering A Quiet Place 2 is in the works for its debut next spring, that fight sounds like it’s going to be more than just a simple dust up.
With a new chapter in a horror story such as this one, there’s bound to be new faces added along the way. A new addition that might be jumping on board to fight these sound-sensitive beasties is none other than Brian Tyree Henry, fresh off of his work in last year’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.
Henry’s name came up as in talks to join in on A Quiet Place 2, presumably alongside Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Millicent Simmonds, as the returning members of the family that single handedly fought off the aliens of the first film. Now, with a wider world at work, Brian Tyree Henry and other new cast members will be able to take the world from the previous film and flesh it out even more for A Quiet Place 2.
This news comes not very long after Cillian Murphy became the first cast member announced to join the sequel to 2018’s blockbuster horror hit. Much like his mysterious interloper who throws his lot in with the Abbott family, not much is known about the role Brian Tyree Henry is in talks to take up. Though should he be confirmed, after the talks that Collider reported have concluded, Henry will have already warmed up on some horrific projects set to debut later this year.
Both the Child’s Play reboot and DC’s new Joker film have some very chilling aspects to them that could prime Brian Tyree Henry for a trip to A Quiet Place 2’s post-apocalyptic alien hunting grounds. Which is good, because the sequel to A Quiet Place has probably gone from a questionable idea to a hotly anticipated sequel in no time.
With John Krasinski returning to both the writing and director’s duties for A Quiet Place 2, seeing as he had an idea so good even Emily Blunt felt it should happen, we’ll be getting more of the world that kicked off when we first met the Abbott family. Only this time, there’s a good chance that more people have the secret to killing these creatures, and a war might be brewing between those who want to defend Earth and those who would claim it.
A Quiet Place 2 is slated to open on March 20, 2020; but if you’re looking for something more horrifying, you can see Brian Tyree Henry in Child’s Play, opening in theaters on June 21st.
