John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are teaming up on screen.

The husband-and-wife duo have signed on to star in the upcoming supernatural thriller A Quiet Place, with Krasinski set to write and direct. He previously directed Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and The Hollars, but this will mark his first time heading up a major studio film — and his first time appearing on screen opposite Blunt.

Scott Beck and Bryan Woods wrote the original script for A Quiet Place, with Krasinski rewriting. Paramount and Platinum Dunes are handling production, and Michael Bay is among the producers.

Krasinski will next be seen in Kathryn Bigelow’s untitled film about the Detroit riots, and he’s also starring as Jack Ryan in Amazon’s upcoming series. Blunt is currently in production on Mary Poppins Returns, starring as the practically perfect nanny in the upcoming Disney sequel.
