Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Are Starring in Their First Movie Together

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Are Starring in Their First Movie Together

After nine years of marriage Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are finally set to appear together on the big screen.

The "Office" star - who tied the knot with "The Girl on the Train" actress in 2010 - is to helm "A Quiet Place" which will be set on a farm and focus on a family that is being terrorised by an evil entity. In addition to The Hollars, Krasinski previously directed the 2009 David Foster Wallace-inspired Brief Conversations with Hideous Men, as well as three episodes of The Office, the NBC comedy he starred in for almost a decade.

Though Krasinski will be doing some rewrites, the early draft of A Quiet Place's script was so good that neither Krasinski nor Blunt could pass it up-forcing them to break their "not working together" rule. Dunes is also producing the Amazon series Jack Ryan, which will star Krasinski as the latest incarnation of the frequently adapted Central Intelligence Agency spy.

A Quiet Place will be produced by Platinum Dunes, the studio that brought us The Purge and Ouija franchises.
