John Krasinski in Talks to Join J.J. Abrams' GOD PARTICLE
Variety reports that John Krasinski may join David Oyelowo and Gugu Mbatha-Raw in God Particle, a sci-fi thriller that will be directed by Julius Onah. J.J. Abrams is producing.
Set in the near future, God Particle “centers on a team of astronauts who make a terrifying discovery that challenges everything they know about the fabric of reality, as they desperately fight for survival.”
The project has been in development for a long time, but it finally has a scheduled release date, February 24, 2017, and production is set to begin in the next few months.
We all loved Krasinski in The Office, but his movie career has been more miss than hit. Looking at his credits, he has only been in one or two movies that I've liked, and those have been supporting roles. However, he is currently on stage in Dry Powder at The Public Theater, and the production is garnering stellar reviews. Hopefully if he decides to sign onto this one he’ll knock it out of the park.
