John Krasinski can do it all and do it well. 


The former The Office star is making big moves in the world of directing. The 38-year-old and the producers of his smash hit A Quiet Place Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are reteaming for a new sci-fi film Life on Mars, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

People have said: 'Did you always want to direct?' And, very truthfully, no. I was so happy just being on the show. And then it slowly started coming organically to direct and, I think, because it was organic, because I hadnt had the intention of doing, I had so much fun with it. I didnt have a lot of pressure. And then, of course, once you do it once, then you get the pressure of, oh, now you need to do it well.

Right now, there is no writer on board and the outlet reports that Krasinski is not expected to star. As for a role that he will play, the former 13 Hours star will be a producer on the project, alongside Allyson Seeger, an executive at his Sunday Night Productions banner.


According to the outlet, the upcoming film will adapt the short story by Cecil Castellucci titled "We Have Always Lived on Mars" which "centers on a woman who is among a handful of descendants of a Martian colony lo 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."


No word if Krasinski's wife Emily Blunt will play a starring role fingers crossed.
