A Quiet Place's Emily Blunt is set to lead the cast in new Netflix movie Pain Hustlers.

The movie also has Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore director David Yates attached to helm the project, according to Deadline.

Pain Hustlers follows Liza Drake (Blunt), a high-school dropout dreaming of a better life for her and her young daughter, who lands a job with a failing pharmaceutical start-up in a yellowing strip mall in Central Florida.

Liza's charm, guts and drive catapult the company and her into the high life, where she soon finds herself at the center of a criminal conspiracy with deadly consequences.

Golden Globe winner Blunt is currently attached to A Quiet Place Part III, and it has also been announced that a prequel spin-off will also be arriving next year, titled A Quiet Place: Day One.

A Quiet Place Part III should see the Abbot family all returning after incredibly surviving the sequel, so alongside Blunt who will be returning as Evelyn, Millicent Simmonds will be back as Regan and Noah Jupe as Marcus.

Cillian Murphy, who joined the cast in the sequel, could also return as Emmett, as his character also survived.

John Krasinski will be taking on the role of director once again, and he previously admitted that he had never thought of a sequel when he was writing the first film, let alone a series of them.

"I never thought that there would be a sequel," he had said at the time. "So then when I actually came around to writing the sequel, I started with the fires.

"And so this time, I think when my brain started wondering [about questions like], 'What would this mean later on?' I started to write down notes in case I could prepare myself for a third one."

There are currently no details about the spin-off as yet, so we don't know whether that will follow the Abbot family as well, or if it will pick up on a whole new cast of characters.

A Quiet Place 3 will open in cinemas during 2025. The spin-off A Quiet Place: Day One will be arriving in cinemas in 2023.
