Djimon Hounsou Replaces Brian Tyree Henry in A Quiet Place 2
A Quiet Place 2 has found a replacement for Brian Tyree Henry as scheduling conflicts have made him drop out of the film. Djimon Hounsou will replace him in the horror/thriller sequel. Fans of recent comic book films will recognize Hounsou from films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel where he plays Korath, Shazam! where he plays the wizard Shazam. And if we want to go a little deeper for comic book film fans, he was the voice of King Ricou in the recent Aquaman film and he played Midnite in the 2005 Constantine film. Entertainment Weekly notes the Quiet Place sequel has already begun filming.
A Quiet Place made quite a buzz when it debuted in 2018. The mostly-silent thriller starred Emily Blunt and her husband John Krasinski, who also directed and co-wrote the film. The film, based around a family trying to survive as monsters who hunted by sound decimated the planet, had critics and fans raving. A sequel has been fast-tracked after the success of the first film.
Krasinski is back writing the sequel. Not much is known about it but that Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Millicent Simmonds will reprise their roles. With Cillian Murphy coming on board and obviously, now, Djimon Hounsou the newest cast member, A Quiet Place 2 is set to release March 20, 2020. That puts it at less than a year away, so speculation abounds about what the film could hold.
That is not a long time. What do you think A Quiet Place 2 will be about? Do you think it can match the success of the first film, or will it flounder? We want to hear from you; let us know what you think in the comments.
