Joseph Quinn‘s Eddie Munson didn’t survive the Demobats of the Upside Down in “Stranger Things” Season 4 (it’s not a spoiler anymore, guys). Now, EW reports (via Deadline), Quinn will take on a different monster altogether as he’s in talks to join Lupita Nyong’o in the upcoming spinoff to the “A Quiet Place” series.
“A Quiet Place: Day One” is the next installment in Jon Krasinski‘s alien invasion series, but it won’t feature the Abbott Family from the first two films. Instead, “Day One” will feature a story about all-new survivors who face off against the franchise’s monsters that hunt through their excellent sense of hearing. Don’t worry, Abbott Family fans: the third installment of their saga is in development. But “Day One” comes first, although plot details for the film are a secret right now.
Michael Sarnoski, who directed 2020’s “Pig” with Nicolas Cage, will helm “Day One” for Paramount Pictures. He directs a script based on an original concept by Krasinski, although the series creator doesn’t write it.
So who will be the next actor to join Quinn and Nyong’o on “A Quiet Place: Day One”? Expect more casting news imminently as this film heads into production soon if it stays on target for its March 8, 2024, theatrical release.
