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.
John attended “The Girl On The Train” premiere last night alongside his wife Emily Blunt, who stars in the movie. The first high quality images have been added in our gallery.

THR is reporting that John has joined Kathryn Bigelow’s upcoming Untitled Detroit Drama.
John Krasinski, who established his leading-man film cred starring in Michael Bay’s 13 Hours, has nabbed a key role in Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit riots drama.
Bigelow is directing the movie that currently is in production in the Boston area, and has actors John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jacob Latimore, Algee Smith, Ben O’Toole, Jack Reynor, Jason Mitchell, Kaitlyn Dever and Hannah Murray as characters on both sides of the racial divide and both sides of the police and civilian line.
Details and character information are being kept under lock and key, but the script by Mark Boal is a crime thriller set against the backdrop of the devastating riots that took place in Detroit over five summer days in 1967.
Bigelow is producing with Boal, Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison and Matthew Budman, and Colin Wilson, with Greg Shapiro executive producing. Annapurna is financing.
The WME-repped Krasinski may have made his name on NBC’s comedy The Office but has been making major inroads with movies since that show went off the air as well as flexing his more dramatic chops. Based on the events of Sept. 11, 2012, in Benghazi, 13 Hours grossed $52 million domestically but has proven to be a massive hit in the home entertainment market.
Krasinski, who directed and starred in the recent dramatic comedy The Hollars, also is starring as the title character in Jack Ryan, Amazon’s thriller series based on the Tom Clancy books about a daring intelligence analyst.
“The Hollars” release in the US is less than a week away, and John is expected to make a few talk show appearances to promote the movie. His upcoming talk show schedule can be found below (Via Interbridge), and we will edit this post when more appearances are announced:

Mo 8/22: Hillary Clinton, John Krasinski, Robert Randolph

A new “Jack Ryan” series, starring John Krasinski, has landed a series greenlight at Amazon with a 10-episode order, Variety has learned.
Based on Tom Clancy’s iconic CIA character, the modernized series, described as a reinvention of the classic story, hails from Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland who shepherded the adaptation.
Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross, Mace Neufeld and Lindsey Springer are also exec producing. The series hails from Paramount TV and Skydance Television.
The hourlong action drama will follow the title character (Krasinski), an up-and-coming CIA analyst, who is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. He uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.
