The 'Shazam!' actor will be stepping into a role previously slated for Brian Tyree Henry.

Djimon Hounsou has joined the cast of the sequel to A Quiet Place. He will replace Brian Tyree Henry in a starring role opposite Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, Milicent Simmons and franchise newcomer Cillian Murphy. 

John Krasinski is returning to direct the follow-up to the hit horror-thriller about a family that fights to survive in a world crawling with noise-targeting creatures.

Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Michael Bay are producing.

Paramount has dated A Quiet Place Part II for a May 15, 2020, release.

Hounsou was last in theaters with back-to-back superhero entries: DC's Shazam! and Marvel's Captain Marvel. He is also set for Sony's Charlie's Angels and Fox/Disney's The King's Man.

Hounsou is repped by CAA and Sloane Offer.
