After the roaring success of A Quiet Place, John Krasinski has revealed details about his next project. The actor-director will now work on a sci-fi thriller, Life on Mars.

The 38-year-old will reunite with the producers of A Quiet Place - Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller for the new film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The plot will adapt a short story by Cecil Castellucci titled ‘We Have Always Lived on Mars’ that revolves around a woman who is among the very few 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.
