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.
