The studio is in talks for the rights. Script is based on a short story by Cecil Castellucci, We Have Always Lived on Mars which follows a woman who is part of a Martin colony that has been abandoned by Earth. One day, she discovers that she can actually breathe on the red planet, upending her world and those around her. Krasinksi isn’t planning to star or direct at this point in time.
A Quiet Place was a surprise hit for Krasinski over the weekend, opening to $50.2M. The pic has a good shot at crossing $100M this coming weekend. Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will produce through their Platinum Dunes label.
