With the immense success of ‘A Quiet Place’ it’s no surprise that director/actor/writer John Krasinski is looking to build off the film’s tremendous momentum.
Krasinski will again team up with both Paramount and Platinum Dunes (Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller) for a new sci-fi film called ‘Life on Mars’.
According to THR, “There is no writer on board and Krasinski, at this stage, is not expected to star. He will also be a producer on the project, alongside Allyson Seeger, an executive at his Sunday Night Productions banner.”
“The project will adapt a short story by Cecil Castellucci titled We Have Always Lived on Mars that centers 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 breathe the air on Mars, upending her world and that of her fellow colonists.”
Krasinski found the story and brought it to Platinum Dunes.
