John Krasinski to follow up A Quiet Place with sci-fi thriller Life On Mars
John Krasinski looks set to follow up A Quiet Place with sci-fi thriller Life On Mars.
The director's debut, which arrived in cinemas a week ago, has already taken $85 million at the box office from a budget of just $17 million, and he is already booking his follow-up.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Krasinski is aiming to reteam with producer Michael Bay and backers Paramount for the new movie, but is not looking to star.
The movie looks set to be based on a short story by Cecil Castellucci titled We Have Always Lived on Mars. The story follows a woman who is among a handful of descendants of a Martian colony long-abandoned by Earth.
However, when the woman one day finds she can breathe the air on Mars, everything changes for her and fellow colonists.
