The new horror thriller A Quiet Place was written and directed by The Office actor John Krasinski, who stars in the movie alongside his real-life wife, Emily Blunt. While the couple has been together for nearly eight years, and they’ve collaborated on two children, this is their first work collaboration. Krasinski told us that working together has been something they’ve wanted to do, but they were very careful about choosing the right project. So what was it about A Quiet Place that made it the right choice? (Click on the media bar below to hear John Krasinski)
Emily Blunt in A QUIET PLACE, from Paramount Pictures.
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are a married couple with children, and now they’re also cinematic collaborators in the highly anticipated horror thriller A Quiet Place.
Krasinski also co-wrote the screenplay and directed the feature which centers on a family (Blunt, Krasinski, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds) who are being hunted by creatures who track their prey via sound. The flick, which has been receiving excellent word of mouth, is high on tension and scant on dialogue.
“For me the creatures were always secondary to what I fell in love with the screenplay,” said Blunt. “For me, in many ways as a mother of two girls it represented my deepest fear of not being able to protect your children and what that must feel like. It scared me to take on this role.”
