Krasinski Moving From A QUIET PLACE To LIFE ON MARS

John Krasinski will be following up his success with the horror film A Quiet Place with Life On Mars.

The actor/director is currently in negotiations with Paramount to bring the Cecil Castellucci short story “We Have Always Lived on Mars” to the big screen. Karsinski will be joined by his A Quiet Place producing partners at Platinum Dunes – Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

Krasinski’s directorial debut, A Quiet Place, opened this past weekend to $50.2 million in business at the domestic box office, a number that exceeded projections that the film would only bring in somewhere in the mid-$300 million.

Variety describes the story as –

[C]enter[ing] on a woman who is among a handful of descendants of a Martian colony long-abandoned by Earth following a cataclysm. The woman one day finds she can breather the air on Mars, upending her world and that of her fellow colonists.

The project is still in its early days, with no screenwriter yet attached. Krasinski is expected to stay behind the camera for the project and will not star in it.
