John Krasinski is going to be a busy man this year. The 37-year-old actor, best known for his role as Jim in The Office, will be writing, directing and starring in a supernatural thriller titled A Quiet Place.
And to make things more stressful, his wife Emily Blunt will be co-starring with him, so he’ll have to direct his wife…the mother of his children.
The good news is that Krasinski has some directing experience now. He directed the comedy-drama film The Hollars, which had its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. It received mixed reviews from critics, mostly because it didn’t offer anything new to the “indie dramedy” market.
Michael Bay will reportedly be a producer on the film, and it’s scheduled to go into production this fall. Not much else is known at this time, but we will keep you posted as more information is released.
It’s going to be really neat to see how this movie turns out, and to see how Blunt and Krasinski work together.
By the way, if the Michael Bay connection sounds strange to you, it’s not. Bay and Krasinski have developed a strong work relationship. John starred in Bay’s 2016 film 13 hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi and they’re also teaming up together for the new Amazon/Paramount series, Jack Ryan.
