There’s something special about co-starring spouses, and Hollywood couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt will try their hand at it in the upcoming Paramount/Platinum Dunes supernatural thriller, A Quiet Place.

Along with sharing screen duties with his talented wife, former Office star Krasinski will also write and direct A Quiet Place. Here is what you need to know.

A Quiet Place Trailer

The next teaser for the immensely secretive thriller will be unspooling some of its mystery during Sunday’s Super Bowl. It will be at the Big Game that we get our next real glance of why everyone is being just so mum about the picture. In the meantime though, here is the first teaser which puts dread to wordless images.

A Quiet Place Release Date

The supernatural thriller will drop on April 6.

A Quiet Place Story Details

The plot details are vague, but we know that the film focuses on a family living in a farm tormented by supernatural forces. Apparently monstrous entities will hunt any creature that makes noise on this land, therefore the family in question will only survive if they communicate solely by sign language, and if they erase all aural communication.

Here is the intentionally short synopsis from the film’s SXSW debut:

If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.

A Quiet Place Cast and Crew

In addition to directing and starring in the film, John Krasinski co-wrote the picture with Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. In the movie, Krasinski will play the patriarch of a family who is said to be something of a “survivalist.” His onscreen wife will is also played by his real, Oscar nominated spouse, Emily Blunt. Blunt’s fictional mother also lives on the farm and is focused on making sure that even in extreme conditions, her children have a future. This includes raising a son (Noah Jupe) to be kind and considerate… and quiet. This extends further to their deaf daughter played by Millicent Simmonds, who is in actuality deaf herself in real life. She also appeared in Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck last year.

Michael Bay is producing along with Platinum Dunes duo Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. Executive producing is Krasinski and his Sunday Night partner Allyson Seeger in tandem with Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, who worked on an earlier draft of the screenplay.
