Lupita Nyong'o in Final Talks to Star in 'A Quiet Place: Day One'.

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is in final talks to lead "A Quiet Place: Day One", a spinoff film of John Krasinski's horror franchise.

Michael Sarnoski will helm the film, set for release on March 8, 2024. Story details are being kept under wraps, but it comes from an original idea from John Krasinksi, who directed and co-starred in the first two “A Quiet Place” movies with Emily Blunt.

Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller are on board to produce the film alongside Krasinski. Currently, it is not believed that any of the stars from the first two movies, including Emily Blunt, will return.

The first two films took place on a post-apocalyptic Earth where terrifying, blind monsters have destroyed society. Even though the deadly beasts can’t see, they use a form of echolocation to hunt their human prey. Krasinski and Blunt, who are married in real life, play Lee and Evelyn Abbott, the parents of two young kids named Marcus and Regan, played by Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds. After Krasinski’s character died in the ending of the original 2018 movie, he returned for a cameo role in the 2020 sequel, which began with a prologue before the monsters attacked. “A Quiet Place: Part II” also introduced Cillian Murphy, Djimon Hounsou, Scoot McNairy and Okieriete Onaodowan to its cast.

"A Quiet Place" earned a staggering $334 million worldwide against a mere $17 million budget, not to mention the rave reviews it earned. That paved the way for 2021's "A Quiet Place: Part II," which was one of the first movies that helped get theaters back on their feet in the aftermath of the pandemic.
