Brian Tyree Henry leaves over scheduling
Captain Marvel star Djimon Hounsou is replacing Brian Tyree Henry in the sequel to John Krasinski’s horror/thriller hit, A Quiet Place.
Sources told Deadline that Atlanta star Henry has left the project due to scheduling conflicts, and so Hounsou is joining the already-announced cast of Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Cillian Murphy.
It’s been a big year for Hounsou, who reprised his Marvel role of Korath in the origin story for their newest hero Captain Marvel, as well as joining the cast of DC’s hit superhero film, Shazam! He also has a number of other exciting projects in the pipeline, including a role in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming Kingsman prequel, The King’s Man, roles in Marvel’s animated superhero series What If…? as well as playing one of the many Bosleys in Elizabeth Banks‘ upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot.
John Krasinski is returning to write and direct A Quiet Place Part II, while Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are producing alongside Michael Bay.
