Peaky Blinders star and frequent Christopher Nolan collaborator Cillian Murphy is in talks to join Emily Blunt in Paramount's sequel to A Quiet Place.

Blunt and kid stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are reprising their roles as the family fighting to survive a world crawling with noise-targeting creatures, with John Krasinski back in the director’s chair. Krasinski is also writing the script.

Details on the plot are being in a very quiet place but sources say that Murphy will play a man with mysterious intentions who joins the family unit.

A summer shoot is being prepped. Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Michael Bay are producing.

The initial move was a surprise runaway hit, grossing $340 million worldwide on a budget of around $17 million. Paramount has dated the sequel for a May 15, 2020, release.

Murphy currently stars as crime boss Thomas Shelby in Peaky Blinders, a historical crime drama from BBC. He may be best known for playing Batman villain Jonathan Crane, aka The Scarecrow, in Nolan’s Batman trilogy. He also appeared in a key role in the filmmaker’s 2017 war drama, Dunkirk.
