After "Peaky Blinders" and Luc Besson's action movie "Anna," Cillian Murphy could well co-star in alien invasion survival horror "A Quiet Place 2" opposite Emily Blunt and under the direction of the first movie's co-star, John Krasinski.
Having survived 2018 horror hit "A Quiet Place," Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe look set to be joined by Cillian Murphy in a May 2020 sequel.
Murphy has been linked to the production by The Hollywood Reporter and is to play a newcomer and potential ally for the Abbott family, should negotiations conclude successfully.
John Krasinski, who co-wrote and co-starred in "A Quiet Place," remains in the director's chair from one film to the next.
Filming is scheduled to begin mid-2019.
Murphy, who has appeared in Christopher Nolan movies "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight," "Inception" and "Dunkirk," returns to TV for a fifth season of British interwar gangland drama "Peaky Blinders," due 2019 and, should previous seasons act as a guideline, debuting towards the end of the year.
He's also been attached to an animated adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's shipwreck adventure, "Kensuke's Kingdom."
