Posted March 17, 2017

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are bringing their love to the big screen!

The couple will headline "A Quiet Place", a thriller that Krasinski plans to write and direct. Filming starts in the fall, according to Variety. He also directed a number of episodes of The Office, on which he played Jim Halpert.

A Quiet Place will mark the first time the couple have starred together in a feature film, and he reacted to the news in an admirable fashion on his Twitter page on Wednesday. Michael Bay will serve as producer along with Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

Krasinski previously directed critically acclaimed indie film "The Hollars" previous year and "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men" in 2009. Krasinski will also rewrite the script from writer and director duo Scott Beck and Bryan Woods.
