The first footage, released on Thursday, shows a family of four living in the woods in a rundown house and using sign language. The tagline reads, “Listen closely, move carefully, and never make a sound. If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.”
The trailer features a creepy wooden crucifix on a bridge, the family attempting to play Monopoly, and a fire starting when a lantern is knocked over.
Krasinski is directing from a script he wrote, revising the screenplay from Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, which the studio acquired prior to Krasinski and Blunt’s involvement.
Krasinski previously helmed “The Hollars” and “Brief Interviews With Hideous Men” in 2009. Michael Bay will produce along with his partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller of Platinum Dunes. Krasinski and his Sunday Night Productions partner Allyson Seeger will serve as executive producers alongside Beck and Woods.
Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds star as the children in a “Quiet Place.” It’s the first time that Krasinski and Blunt have appeared on screen together. The couple married in 2010.
