We Have Always Lived in the Space Castle

Striking out hard and quick against the common conception that it is hard out there for straight white men, John Krasinski has already lined up a new film project just a couple of days after his horror movie A Quiet Place debuted to a whole lotta B.O. (Read my review of the movie, which is perfectly fine, right here.) According to DH John will tackle Life on Mars, a sci-fi adaptation of Cecil Castellucci's short-story titled "We Have Always Lived on Mars" (that's a nice shout-out to Shirley Jackson, Cecil) which is about, you guessed it, people living on Mars. With a Total Recall twist (sadly, as far as I know, I do not mean there will be three-breasted prostitutes) - it's about one of the colonists, a woman, suddenly realizing she can breath Martian air. Hmmm... I wonder if the woman character might be a good fit for an "Emily Blunt" type?

Honestly, at this point, I think all female roles are perfect for an "Emily Blunt"-type. Girl is UNSTOPPABLE
