Final negotiations are currently under way to snag Lupita Nyong’o as the titular role in A Quiet Place: Day One. The film is a spinoff of Paramount’s A Quiet Place, which in 2018 became a surprise hit in the hands of director and star John Krasinski. It earned $340.9 million on a $17 million budget. The Krainski-directed A Quiet Place: Part 2 followed in 2021 and earned $297.3 million. Tapped to direct is Michael Sarnoski, who became a top director after helming Nicolas Cage’s film, Pig.

Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce via Platinum Dunes. John Krasinski is also set to produce via his Sunday Night banner with partner Allyson Seeger executive producing. In addition to this spinoff, a third installment of the main A Quiet Place film series is in the works and set for 2025. No further details of this project are available at this time.
