A Quiet Place: day one to reveal origin of Djimon Hounsou's mysterious character from part II

The upcoming film ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ serves not only as a prequel to the post-alien invasion world seen in the first two movies, but it also sheds light on the backstory of a character introduced in ‘A Quiet Place Part II.’ Djimon Hounsou's character, who leads a colony of survivors, played a crucial role in the latter part of the second film, helping Evelyn and her family. However, viewers know little about him other than his brief mention of being from New York.

Director Michael Sarnoski, who helms ‘A Quiet Place: Day One,’ has confirmed that the prequel will finally reveal the character's name and explore his origin story. ‘We do get to learn his name,’ Sarnoski shared in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, adding that the prequel would delve into the events surrounding the mysterious man's past.

The director explained that Hounsou's character's brief mention of the events in New York from Part II was the launching point for ‘Day One.’ The film takes that initial information and expands it, showing what happened when the aliens first arrived. Sarnoski stated, ‘It's not his twin or anything like that. He's there, and we get to learn a little bit more about that backstory and how that group of people started out.’

In addition to Djimon Hounsou's character, the prequel introduces new characters to the franchise. Lupita Nyong'o and Joseph Quinn are set to play leading roles, while Alex Wolff portrays a friend of Nyong'o's character, who goes through intense situations as they navigate the end of the world together. Sarnoski explained that "Day One" explores a different aspect of the alien invasion, focusing on strangers who must find common ground to survive, contrasting with the established family dynamics seen in the first two films.
