Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka are teaming up for a new thriller on Netflix called “The Silence.” John R. Leonetti directed the film for Netflix, working on a screenplay by Carey and Shane Van Dyke. The movie is an adaptation, based on the novel by Tim Lebbon and produced by Alexandra Michlan, Scott Lambert, and Robert Kulzer. Starring in the film alongside Tucci and Shipka are Miranda Otto and John Corbett.
If you like to read the original work before watching the adaptation, you can find “The Silence” right here on Amazon.
In the story, the world is under attack from terrifying creatures who hunt their human prey by sound. The film follows 16-year old Ally Andrews (Kiernan Shipka), who lost her hearing at 13, and her family seeks refuge in a remote haven. There they discover a sinister cult who are eager to exploit Ally’s heightened senses.
John R. Leonetti worked on the “Annabelle” horror-thriller, and fans probably know Kiernan Shipka best from her work on Netflix’s own “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”
If you want to set a reminder to catch the film, “The Silence” debuts on Netflix on Wednesday, April 10th.
It’s hard not to draw parallels to “A Quiet Place,” the thriller directed and starring John Krasinski where monsters hunted people by sound. That film hit theaters in 2018 and also featured Emily Blunt. The film made $50M on opening weekend before grossing over $340M. There’s also Netflix’s “Birdbox,” which had monsters that would haunt you if you looked at them. Susanne Bier directed that adaptation, which starred Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, and John Malkovich.
