THR is reporting that Noah Jupe has joined Emily Blunt and John in “A Quiet Place“. Filming is expected to begin next month in upstate New York.
Noah Jupe, the young actor who stars opposite Matt Damon in Suburbicon, has closed a deal to join Emily Blunt and John Krasinski in A Quiet Place, a supernatural thriller from Paramount and Platinum Dunes.
Krasinski will direct the film from a script he wrote with Scott Beck and Bryan Woods.
While plot details are being kept in the barn, the project is described as a contained thriller centering on a family living on a farm that is terrorized by a supernatural evil.
Blunt and Krasinski will play the parents, while Jupe will play their son.
The project is set to begin shooting in September in upstate New York.
Jupe, who appeared on BBC’s Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston, is primed for a colorful fall as he’s set to appear in two A-list heavy features. He stars as Damon’s son in Suburbicon, the dark comedy directed by George Clooney that opens Oct. 27, and he also appears in Wonder, Stephen Chbosky’s drama starring Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay and Owen Wilson, which Lionsgate has set to bow Nov. 17.
Deadline is reporting that John and Emily Blunt are teaming up for “A Quiet Place“. John is also set to direct. This will be the first time that John and Emily will work together.
In what marks John Krasinski’s first major studio directorial release, The Office alum will write, direct and star with wife Emily Blunt in the Paramount/Platinum Dunes feature A Quiet Place. It’s also the first time the duo has appeared onscreen together. Even though they are co-credited with appearances in 2011’s The Muppets, they did not share scenes.
The storyline for A Quiet Place is being kept under wraps. Production is scheduled for this fall. Krasinski re-wrote the script from an earlier draft by Scott Beck & Bryan Woods. Paramount originally bought Beck and Woods’ spec before Krasinski boarded. We hear the studio is very high on the duo and put a blind write-to-direct deal in place.
Krasinski and his Sunday Night partner Allyson Seeger will serve as executive producers along with Beck & Woods. Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes will produce.
