The married couple and parents of two are set to star opposite each other for the first time, in the supernatural thriller A Quiet Place, E! News confirmed Wednesday. The movie is set on a farm and is about a family that is being terrorized by evil, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Krasinski will also direct the film, which will mark his third time behind the camera for a movie, and had also co-written its script. A release date has not been set.

Blunt and Krasinski had starred together in the 2011 film The Muppets but shared no scenes. They also both voiced characters in the animated movies The Wind Rises and Animal Crackers, the latter of which is set for release in September.
"I would love to direct Emily," Krasinski told E! News' Marc Malkin last year. "I don't know, I would rather act with Emily than direct. I don't know if I need that responsibility. She's so good and I'd be so scared to screw it up. But happy to be in scenes with her because that would be really fun. We're always up for doing something, it just gotta be the right thing."

Mia Farrow and Woody Allen: The two were in a relationship between 1979 and 1992, when she discovered nude photos of her then-21-year-old adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn at his apartment. Allen wed Previn in 1997.
During their time together, Farrow starred in 13 of Allen's films, including eight that he appeared in himself, such as Zelig, A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy and Husbands and Wives.

Sean Penn and Robin Wright: The Oscar winner and the House of Cards and The Princess Bride actress are parents to a daughter, Dylan, who was born in 1991, and a son, Hopper, who was born in 1993. The couple separated in 1995 but reconciled and wed a year later. They split in 2007, reconciled again, then finalized a divorce in 2010.
Over the past 27 years, they co-starred in seven films, while Penn directed Wright in two.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt: The actor guest-starred on Friends in 2001, a year after the pair's wedding. He played a former high school classmate who had changed a lot since high school and reveals that he and Ross were part of an "I Hate Rachel" club.
Pitt and Aniston called it quits in 2005.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: They met and fell in love on the set of the 2005 film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, in which they played a volatile spy couple. They went on to raise a family of six kids together and wed in 2014. Jolie filed for divorce in September.
In 2015, the two co-starred in the movie By the Sea, in which they played a couple that tries to repair their marriage.
"It's very very different than Mr. & Mrs. Smith," Jolie told E! News at the time. "It isn't a comedy. It's 10 years after. Anyone who's been married a really long time will understand this movie."
"Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems we couldn't have made the film. To be clear: we have fights and problems like any other couple," she told The Telegraph. "We have days when we drive each other absolutely mad and want space, but the problems in the movie aren't our specific problems."
