A Quiet Place will be the third film Krasinski, 37, has directed, and the first studio film. He has also had a hand in writing the script.
According to sources, Krasinski and Blunt, who wed in 2010 and are parents to daughters Hazel, 3, and Violet, prefer keeping their work and personal lives separate, Variety reports.
But both actors did not want to pass on this one. The thriller will be a vastly different role for Blunt, 34, who is currently filming Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns.
