Hounsou, whose upcoming projects also include Charlie’s Angels, The King’s Man, and the TV series What If…?, joins Emily Blunt, who returns for the sequel alongside cast members Noah Jupe (Suburbicon, Wonder) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck), with John Krasinski who will write and direct again.
