Alex Wolff has joined Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn in the cast of director Michael Sarnoski’s A Quiet Place: Day One
Alex Wolff from Hereditary worked together with the director Michael Sarnoski on his Nicolas Cage drama Pig (see it HERE), and now Wolff and Sarnoski are set to team up again for Sarnoski’s latest directorial effort: A quiet place spin off A Quiet Place: Day One. Deadline reports that Wolff is in 12 years a slave Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and Joseph Quinn – better known as Eddie Munson from the last season Stranger Things – in the film’s cast.
Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special) was attached to write and direct A Quiet Place: Day One for a while, but when he dropped out he was replaced by Sarnoski. The story takes place in the same world established in the first two films, but apparently does not involve the Abbott family, the characters we followed through the two films directed by John Krasinski.
Details of the plot of A Quiet Place: Day One and all its characters are being kept closely under wraps. This is a separate project from A Quiet Place Part III, which Krasinski returns to direct. Paramount has A Quiet Place: Day One scheduled for one March 8, 2024 theatrical release, and A Quiet Place Part III to follow in 2025.
Deadline‘s sources said so after seeing Pig and when he was blown away by the film, Krasinski was quick to put Sarnoski on the short list of directors to take a meeting for the project. While insiders say Sarnoski’s vision for the film was still his own and different from what Krasinski had done with the first two, he still provided a pitch that fit the tone of the world they had created and felt he was a perfect fit for their next installment. .
Krasinski is producing A Quiet Place: Day One under his Sunday Night banner, while Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller produce through their company Platinum Dunes. Krasinski’s Sunday Night partner Allyson Seeger serves as executive producer.
Wolff’s other credits include The Naked Brothers Band, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Patriots Day, My Friend Dahmer, Dude, Bad Education, Old, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and Jumanji: The Next Level.
