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.
