Joseph Quinn (a.k.a. Eddie Munson) might have found his martyry purpose in the Upside Down, but it’s A Quiet Place where he may find his next income stream. The Stranger Things breakout star is in talks to star alongside Black Panther: Wakanda Forever scene-stealer and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o in A Quiet Place: Day One. Nyong’o is in final negotiations to lead Paramount’s new venture, a spinoff based on the original Quiet Place films, according to an earlier Deadline report. The film is written and directed by Pig’s Michael Sarnoski, and studio execs hope that it jump-starts a Quiet Place franchise — a Quiet Place Cinematic Universe, if you will. John Krasinski (creator, director, and star of the original movies) and Emily Blunt likely won’t reprise their roles in the Nyong’o-led installment. Hopefully, the Marvel and Stranger Things stars can find some peace on the set of this movie. Alhough the world of the film is a postapocalyptic, alien-infested wasteland, at least it’s relatively, well, quiet. Paramount is aiming for a March 8, 2024, release, while the third installment of the OG franchise arrives sometime in 2025.
