Joseph Quinn In Talks For Leading Role In ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ Starring Lupita Nyong’o

Following his star-making role as Eddie Munson in Stranger Things, Joseph Quinn has found his next big project as he is in negotiations to for a leading role opposite Lupita Nyong’o, who is starring, in Paramount’s A Quiet Place: Day One. The spinoff will be directed and written by Pig helmer Michael Sarnoski.

Not much more is known about this project other than it not being a threequel but rather a spinoff, based on an idea from John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the first two films. The hope is this film will help set up a potential Quiet Place universe that the studio can build on for years to come. It also is known that, while not out of the question, Emily Blunt and Krasinski likely won’t reprise their roles in this installment. The film is set to bow on March 8, 2024.

The original franchise is currently developing the third film, with Krasinski returning to direct that pic, which is set to bow sometime in 2025.

British actor Joseph Quinn has become the face of the Gris Dior scent, which is part of La Collection Privée Christian Dior.

“A mesmerizing and mysterious actor, he is the perfect embodiment of the streamlined chypre accord of this leading composition, designed as the olfactory transcription of the emblematic color of the Avenue Montaigne house,” Parfums Christian Dior wrote in a statement.

On screen, Quinn played the part of Eddie Munson in season four of the Netflix sci-fi series “Stranger Things.” He also has starred in the Sky Original/HBO series “Catherine the Great,” opposite Helen Mirren, in the role of her son Prince Paul. Quinn was in the BBC’s adaptation of “Les Misérables” as well. On stage, he starred with Olivia Colman in Lucy Kirkwood’s “Mosquitoes” at the National Theatre in London. “It’s crazy, I never thought that I would have anything to do with the fashion world,” Quinn said during a Zoom interview. “It’s such an honor.”

He was learning more about the Dior brand. “Literally, it was my first fashion week,” Quinn said. “So I am very new to this whole thing.” The Dior show on Sept. 27 served as his first, and Quinn found the experience “pretty hectic, but the clothes were amazing.” He sat next to Elle Macpherson, “which was kind of mad, and she was so nice.” When asked about his relationship to fragrance, the actor explained: “I love smelling good.” Quinn said Gris Dior “smells amazing, unlike anything I’ve smelled before — so it’s pretty fun to be a part of it.”

He will appear in spots for Gris Dior on Dior social channels. Shooting for the scent differed entirely from filming a movie. “With acting, you’re playing a character, that’s what you’re in service of. Here, it feels a little bit more like me, which feels quite strange and kind of fun,” Quinn said. “The fact that they thought of me in that capacity is very flattering.”

At the beginning of this year he acted in “Hoard,” the first feature film created by writer and director Luna Carmoon. Among other directors he’d love to work with are Michael Sarnoski, Paul Thomas Anderson and Claire Denis.

As for types of roles Quinn’s interested in trying out? “I’m just walking into this with my arms wide open,” he said. “It’s not like I have a particular appetite to play a cowboy or a psycho or anything like that. I’m just going to see what opportunities come my way — and try not to mess them up.”
