Just when you thought the world of A Quiet Place couldn’t get any scarier, they only went and got Tommy Shelby involved.

Irish actor Cillian Murphy has joined the cast of the sequel to 2018’s A Quiet Place, a horror movie directed by and starring John Krasinski.

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that the Corkman will play “a man with mysterious intentions who joins the family unit”.

The follow-up to Krasinski’s horror debut – which sees civilisation ravaged and forced into silence by a vicious species of creature with super hearing – is set for release on May 15, 2020. There is no official title as of yet but the sequel will also be written and directed by Krasinski.

While Murphy is likely to play a regular old human, he certainly has experience playing creepy or menacing roles in films like Red Eye and Batman Begins, as well as certain scenes in Peaky Blinders.

The first movie starred Krasinski alongside Emily Blunt, who is expected to feature in the sequel but – SPOILER ALERT – Krasinski, whose character dies at the end, will not.
