We’re counting down the days till the release of the sequel to the super-silent, super-scary A Quiet Place – and we’ve now had an update about who’s going to be in the new film.

We already know Emily Blunt will be returning to A Quiet Place: Part II, as well as Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds as Evelyn’s children Marcus and Regan – plus Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy, whose role is being kept under wraps so far.

And the rest of the cast? Well, Brian Tyree Henry was originally set to appear in the sequel, but it’s now been revealed (via Deadline) that Marvel star Djimon Hounsou will now be joining the cast instead.

The actor is probably best known to genre fans for playing Kree warrior Korath the Pursuer in Guardians of the Galaxy, a role that he reprised for Captain Marvel.

He also played the Wizard in DC’s Shazam!, which he starred in opposite Zachary Levi and Asher Angel.

We don’t yet have any word as to what kind of character he will be playing, or even many clues about the plot, but we can’t wait to find out.

Blunt previously teased of the sequel: “I think actually it’s now what’s the next chapter and what happens next. I think people feel very invested in this family… I think it’s such an open book right now, and certainly for John [Krasinski], who is lasering into something as we speak.”

And if you’re wondering when we can see Hounsou and co in action, A Quiet Place: Part II will be released on March 20, 2020, after it had its release date brought forward by two months.
