Hot off the success of A Quiet Place, John Krasinski and the film’s producers have already set their sights on their next project: An adaptation of the sci-fi thriller Life on Mars. THR got the exclusive reporting:
Krasinski and the producers of A Quiet Place — Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller — are reteaming for Life on Mars.
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.
