After the success of his new horror film, John Krasinski is planning to take on another genre. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor and filmmaker is following up A Quiet Place with sci-fi thriller Life on Mars. The movie is based on Cecil Castellucci’s short story We Have Always Lived on Mars. The plot centers on a woman who is one of only a few descendants of a human Martian colony long abandoned by Earth. One day she discovers that she can breathe the planet’s toxic atmosphere.
Krasinski is teaming back up with his A Quiet Place producers — Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller — to produce the project. He is reportedly not expected to star in the movie, but, hey, maybe there will be a part for his favorite Devil Wears Prada star Emily Blunt.
