Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the film, and if the deal goes through, Krasinski will write, direct, and produce. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
Krasinski and Reynolds have long been friends, trading compliments on social media, but this would be their first time appearing on screen together. Krasinski previously joined forces with Paramount for A Quiet Place, which he also wrote, directed, and starred in. He recently wrapped filming on the sequel, set to hit theaters March 20.
