John Krasinski to Write, Direct and Star With Emily Blunt in ‘Quiet’ Thriller
Hollywood couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt will co-star in their first feature film together.
Krasinksi is set to rewrite and direct the Paramount/Platinum Dunes supernatural thriller “A Quiet Place,” marking his third directorial effort and first for a major studio, and also star opposite his wife Blunt in the film.
The spec was bought preemptively by Paramount from Scott Beck and Bryan Woods prior to Krasinski and Blunt’s involvement , so the studio was already very high on the project and high on the hot writer/director duo Beck and Woods. Off the script, the studio put a blind write-to-direct deal for Beck and Woods on their next project.
Krasinski previously helmed critically acclaimed indie “The Hollars” last year and “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” in 2009.
Michael Bay will produce along with his partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes Krasinski and his Sunday Night partner Allyson Seeger will serve as executive producers alongside Beck and Woods.
