John Krasinski Reunites With ‘A Quiet Place’ Producers For ‘Life On Mars’


A Quiet Place filmmaker John Krasinski is teaming up with Platinum Dunes again to produce the spec script Life on Mars for Paramount.

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.
