Lupita Nyong’o is the first name to be announced for the cast of the upcoming spin-off film to A Quiet Place.
With a new spin-off movie set to release in 2023, things were looking promising far for fans of A Quiet Place, up until the summer announcement that Paramount was delaying the film into 2024. Still, today’s announcement that Black Panther's Lupita Nyong’o will be leading the cast for the film continues to add to the overall sense of positivity surrounding the project.
We know that A Quiet Place: Day One will take place at the very beginning of the terrifying apocalyptic event that kickstarted the whole narrative, whilst we also know that the story is based on an idea by series creator, John Krasinski. Michael Sarnoski was brought in to direct the spin-off, which is also good news. Sarnoski is the helmer of the wonderful Nicolas Cage-headlined movie Pig and seems well-suited for a spin-off film set in the world of A Quiet Place.
Nyong’o has earned both critical and commercial success, earning an Oscar for 12 Years A Slave whilst also featuring in major tentpole movies like the Black Panther series. Her casting is all we have to go on right now, with no story details emerging, but we’re liking the early direction in which this project is headed.
John Krasinski, director of the first two films, is also working on a third entry in the mainline series. Krasinski’s film isn’t expected to arrive until 2025 though. Still, this news will presumably serve to sharpen the appetite of fans ahead of an expected brace of films in 2024 and 2025.
