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

Reports suggest that Irish actor Cillian Murphy is set to join the cast of the sequel to 2018’s A Quiet Place, a horror movie directed by and starring John Krasinski.

Entertainment magazine Variety has reported that the Corkman is in talks to join the cast, although no details have been made available over what kind of role he would play if he does end up in the film.

The follow-up to Krasinki’s horror debut — which sees humans under siege by alien monsters who have super-hearing — is set for release on May 15, 2020. There’s no title as of yet.

While Murphy might play a normal old human, he certainly has experience playing creepy or menacing roles — including Red Eye, Batman Begins, and certain scenes in Peaky Blinders.

The first movie starred Krasinski alongside Emily Blunt, who is expected to feature in the sequel.
