A Quiet Place may have not been John Krasinski’s first directorial effort, but it’s the one that really put him on the map as a creative powerhouse in Hollywood. As with every big coming out party, the filmmaker’s next movie is an indication of what we can expect from them in the future. Now, Krasinski has found his next project.

According to THR, Krasinski’s follow-up to A Quiet Place will be a sci-fi thriller called Life on Mars. Krasinski and Allyson Seeger will be producing alongside Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller, who produced A Quiet Place. Paramount — who produced the horror film — is in negotiations to pick this one up from Krasinski and co., and given all the money he’s made for them so far, I don’t imagine this will fall through.

Life on Mars will be adapted from the short story We Have Always Lived on Mars by Cecil Castellucci. Here’s how the outlet describes the project.

“[We Have Always Lived on Mars] 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.”

There is currently no writer on board to direct the film, and while Krasinski does have a history in starring in his movies, he’s currently not expected to do so in this film.
