John Krasinski spirit Steve Carell might just be giving the “fun run” another go.
According to Deadline, Krasinski is set to direct an upcoming film called IF for Paramount Pictures — and in addition to directing, Krasinski will also star alongside his former The Office co-star, Carell. The impressive cast also includes Ryan Reynolds, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Fiona Shaw, Alan Kim, Louis Gossett Jr., and Cailey Fleming.
On Jan. 25, the Quiet Place director seemed to allude to the big news on Instagram, captioning a collage photo of the cast (excluding himself), “Ah, what if one day I could assemble my dream cast? What … IF.”
Per the outlet, specific details about the film are currently being “kept under wraps,” but the story is reportedly based on “Krasinski’s original idea about a child’s journey to rediscover their imagination.”
And not only will Krasinski be at the helm as the film’s director, but is also on board as a writer and producer through his Sunday Night Productions company. Reynolds is also set to co-produce the movie through his production company, Maximum Effort.
