The film, titled A Quiet Place: Day One, is the next installment in the horror franchise, and will be directed by Michael Sarnoski (Pig). The movie’s plot is currently being kept under wraps, but is said to be coming from an original idea from John Krasinski, who also directed and co-starred in the first two installments of the hit franchise.

Nyong’o’s next role will come in the highly anticipated Black Panther sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, in which she’ll reprise her role as Nakia.

A Quiet Place 2 shook up the tone of the horror franchise with a thrilling scene that showed the chaos of the early days of the invasion. Day One will further expand on this concept while also shifting the perspective beyond the Abbott family that the main series follows.

Day One will also serve as a stopgap between mainline entries in the franchise, as director John Krasinski will return to helm the third Quiet Place film. This movie is set for release sometime in 2025, but that’s pretty far out and definitely subject to change.
