Djimon Hounsou Replacing Brian Tyree Henry In A Quiet Place 2
By James White Posted 12 Aug 2019
Though Brian Tyree Henry was all set to star alongside Emily Blunt in the sequel to last year’s sci-fi terror hit A Quiet Place, scheduling issues have reared their head, and we’d figure that it’s because of Marvel’s Eternals. Never fear, though, as an MCU veteran is stepping into his (quiet) place, with Djimon Hounsou now taking over the role.
Quite what Henry (and now Hounsou) will be up to remains a mystery as shooting continues on the film with John Krasinski back directing. The story will follow the continuing adventures of Blunt’s resourceful Evelyn Abbott and her kids Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and Marcus (Noah Jupe) as they try to survive in a post-apocalyptic world where creatures hunt using their super-sensitive hearing.
Cillian Murphy is also part of the cast, and the movie itself will be out on 20 March next year. Hounsou will be seen in Charlie’s Angels (29 November) as one of the Bosleys and is part of the cast for the Kingsman prequel The King’s Man, headed here on 14 February. As for Henry, he pops up in Joker (4 October).
