Billed as Krasinki’s next directorial project, Deadline reports that IF is “based on Krasinski’s original idea about a child’s journey to rediscover their imagination.” The A Quiet Place filmmaker will also write and produce the film via his company Sunday Night, while Ryan Reynolds, Alan Kim, Cailey Fleming and Louis Gossett Jr. are part of the cast. Also serving as producers are Allyson Seeger and Andrew Form, and Reynolds via Maximum Effort, along with George Dewey executive producing.
Krasinki and Carell’s last project together was the famed TV series The Office. Although Carell left the show in the seventh season, he did return for the series finale to serve as Dwight Schrute’s (Rainn Wilson) best man.
IF premieres November 17, 2023.
