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.More news: 'Unprecedented suffering' for Syrian children in 2016
It's now been greenlit with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes company producing the film which is slated to start production in the fall.
Blunt is now working on Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, which began production in London earlier this month, playing the eponymous magical nanny.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski will also both lend their voices to the upcoming animated feature Animal Crackers.
