Brian Tyree Henry is in negotiations to star in A Quiet Place 2, according to TheWrap.
The sequel is directed by the director and star of the first film John Krasinski. His real-life and on-screen wife, Emily Blunt, returns to lead this film alongside Cillian Murphy, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe.
The first film followed a family of four who must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival.
Atlanta star Henry is one of the most in-demand actors of the moment. He appeared in six films last year, including If Beale Street Could Talk and Widows. He’s already set for four films coming out this year: Child’s Play, Superintelligence (with Melissa McCarthy), The Woman in the Window (with Amy Adams and Anthony Mackie) and Joker. Outside of that, he’ll appear in the next Godzilla film and an untitled film with Jennifer Lawrence and more.
A Quiet Place 2 is due in theaters on May 15, 2020.
