Emily Blunt and John Krasinski might *actually* be the cutest couple in Hollywood, but the famous pair haven't been in a movie together-until now. Krasinski, who is coming off the success of his drama The Hollars, will also direct and write the script for A Quiet Place, which Variety reports is "set on a farm where a supernatural being has been terrifying a family for some time".

The film will be Krasinski's third directorial credit, following 2009's Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and 2016's The Hollars, and it's expected to go into production later this year.

That's all about to change, however, as news has leaked that the awesome twosome will finally (finally!) be starring alongside one another in an upcoming movie called A Quite Place. Krasinski will also rewrite the script from writer and director duo Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. Krasinski previously worked with Platinum Dunes as the star of Bay's Benghazi war drama 13 Hours.

They are also both voicing characters in Animal Crackers, which is released on September 15. Dunes is also producing the Amazon series Jack Ryan, which will star Krasinski as the latest incarnation of the frequently adapted Central Intelligence Agency spy.

Emily is now in England working on the Mary Poppins remake, in which she plays the title character, while John is working on the Jack Ryan TV series.

Blunt is now working on Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, which began production in London earlier this month, playing the eponymous magical nanny.
