John Krasinski Announces His Next Film; Sci-Fi Thriller Life on Mars
With John Krasinski’s horror-thriller A Quiet Place getting all the love and box-office money this past weekend, I’ve been awaiting news of his next film – which I (kinda) hoped would be A Quiet Place 2…
Krasinski, who found the story and brought it to Platinum Dunes, will also be a producer on the project, alongside Allyson Seeger, but is not expected to star in the film.
The adaptation of Cecil Castellucci’s short story “We Have Always Lived on Mars”, which centers on a woman who can breathe the air on Mars, doesn’t currently have a screenwriter officially attached to the film, but Paramount is already in negotiations to pick up the flick one it’s finished.
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 breathe the air on Mars, upending her world and that of her fellow colonists.
