The Peaky Blinders star is in negotiations to join the sequel to A Quiet Place. 

Cillian Murphy is in talks to star in the horror sequel directed by original director John Krasinski, who is also writing the script. 

Should he join, he will star opposite Emily Blunt and kids stars Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are reprising their roles. According to Entertainment Weekly, though little is known about the sequel’s plot and new characters, according to sources, Murphy is said to play a man who joins the Abbott family unit, though his intentions are mysterious.

The first film about a family trying to survive in a world overrun by vicious, blind monsters that hunt their prey through their enhanced hearing was a surprise hit, grossing $340 million worldwide. 

Murphy’s other credits include his role as Jonathan Crane, aka The Scarecrow, in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and Nolan’s Dunkirk.
