‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ At Paramount Taps Lupita Nyongo To Star

11/01/2022

EXCLUSIVE: As she readies to make her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the highly-anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Lupita Nyong’o is looking to make the jump to another popular franchise as source say she is in final negotiations to star in Paramount’s A Quiet Place: Day One. The spinoff will be directed by Pig director Michael Sarnoski which is based on an original idea by John Krasinski.

Not much more is known about this project other than it not being a threequel but rather a spinoff, based on an idea from Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two films. The hope is this film would help set up a potential Quiet Place universe that the studio can build on for years to come. It is also known that, while not out of the question, Emily Blunt and Krasinski likely would not reprise their roles in this installment. The film is set to bow on March 8, 2024.

The original franchise is currently developing the third film with Krasinski returning to direct that pic, which is set to bow sometime in 2025.

Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce via Platinum Dunes alongside Krasinski via his Sunday Night banner with partner Allyson Seeger, who serves as executive producer. A Quiet Place Part II, the first post-pandemic theatrical-only release, opened to $57 million at the domestic box office, has earned $297 million worldwide and garnered a 91% Rotten Tomatoes score.

As for Nyong’o, the Oscar-winner is set to make her return to the MCU with the highly-anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which is set to bow on Nov. 11. She returns to reprise her role as Nakia in a film that is expected to be one of the biggest draws of the year.

She is repped by CAA.
