The actress Lupita Nyong’o, well known for her role in ‘Black Panther,’ is the latest A-lister to join the cast of ‘A Quiet Place.’ According to Variety, the Oscar-winning actor from “12 Years a Slave,” “Black Panther,” and “Us” will play the lead role in the next instalment of the horror franchise produced by Paramount, titled “A Quiet Place: Day One.”
The actor is currently in final negotiations to play the role of the protagonist in the film. Michael Sarnoski, the director of “Pig,” will helm this motion picture, which is slated to be released on March 8, 2024. Although specifics of the story are being kept under wraps, John Krasinksi, who directed and appeared alongside Emily Blunt in the first two “A Quiet Place” films, is the author of the story.
According to the allegations in Variety, the first two films took place on a post-apocalyptic Earth in which civilisation has been wiped out by horrible, blind monsters. Despite the fact that they are blind, the dangerous creatures hunt their human prey utilising a form of echolocation. Marcus and Regan Abbott are two young children who are portrayed on the show by Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds, respectively. Their parents, Lee and Evelyn Abbott, are portrayed on the show by John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, who are married in real life.
After his character died in the climactic sequence of the first film, which was released in 2018, Krasinski made a brief cameo appearance in the sequel, which was released in 2020 and began with a prologue before the monsters began their assault. In addition to Scoot McNairy, Cillian Murphy, Djimon Hounsou, and Okieriete Onaodowan, the cast of ‘A Quiet Place: Part II’ was expanded to include these actors.
According to Variety, Lupita Nyong’o will make an appearance in the highly anticipated sequel to 2018‘s ‘Black Panther,’ titled ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ which will be released by Marvel. She’ll reprise her role as Nakia this time.
She was be featured in Apple’s adaptation of “Lady in the Lake,” but she exited the film in May after having been cast in the role. In 2014, Nyong’o was honoured with an Academy Award for her work on the film “12 Years a Slave.” In addition to Krasinski and his Sunday Night banner alongside collaborator Allyson Seeger, who also functions as an executive producer, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes will produce “A Quiet Place: Day One.” Krasinski and his Sunday Night banner will also produce the film.
