AceShowbiz - %cEmily Blunt% and %cJohn Krasinski% will team up for Paramount and Platinum Dunes' supernatural thriller "A Quiet Place". This is the first time the husband and wife appear onscreen together, although both will lend their voices to cartoon "Animal Crackers".
Besides starring in "A Quiet Place", Krasinski will direct and co-write the script along with Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. The movie is set to be a low-budget movie, just like the previous Platinum Dunes' project "The Purge". Plot detail for "A Quiet Place" is still kept under wraps, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film "is a semi-contained thriller set on a farm where a family is being terrorized by evil."
The movie marks Krasinski's third directorial project on feature film. His film "The Hollars" premiered at Sundance Film Festival last year and was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. In terms of acting, Krasinski is known for his role as Jim Halpert on TV Series "The Office". He will next be seen in Kathryn Bigeloe's untitled Detroit project and will star on Amazon's upcoming series "Jack Ryan" as the titular character.
Blunt was nominated for a BAFTA and SAG award for her performance in "The Girl on the Train". She is currently filming Disney's "Mary Poppins Returns", portraying the titular nanny. Blunt's other upcoming movies include animated films "Gnomeo and Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes" and "My Little Pony".
Last year, Krasinski told TIME that he always wanted to share screen with Blunt, whom he married in 2010. "We've always talked about doing a movie or a play together. We just don't want the idea of us being married to supersede the movie, so we have have to find something that's that specific," he said.
