If (2024, D: Krasinski) S: Reynolds, Carell, Waller-Bridge, Gossett, Shaw


EXCLUSIVE: Fans of The Office look to be getting a long-awaited reunion as Steve Carell is set to join former Office cohort John Krasinski in the Quiet Place helmerís next directing gig IF at Paramount Pictures. Alan Kim, Cailey Fleming and Louis Gossett Jr. also are on board, joining Ryan Reynolds and Krasinski, who will star in the pic. Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Fiona Shaw are also on board.

Details are being kept under wraps, but the story is based on Krasinskiís original idea about a childís journey to rediscover their imagination. Krasinski will direct, write and produce the original film via his company, Sunday Night, with partners Allyson Seeger and Andrew Form producing. Reynolds also will produce via his company, Maximum Effort, and George Dewey will executive produce.

The film is set to bow on November 17, 2023.

Sunday Night and Maximum Effort recently signed first-look deals with the studio, with this film being spotlighted in the Sunday Night announcement as something Paramount, Krasinski and Reynolds have been high on for some time.

John Krasinski has more answers for the who, what and when regarding his feature film project If.

The multi-hyphenate turned up in Las Vegas on Thursday to make an extended appearance inside Caesars Palace during Paramount Pictures’ studio presentation at CinemaCon. First, he helped debut the first-ever look at A Quiet Place: Day One, the next installment in the franchise he created, though he left directing duties on this film to Michael Sarnoski.

Krasinski, who admitted he was jealous giving up the director’s chair after seeing the footage, stayed in the spotlight after the clip played to break news on If. But first, he joked that he thought it was finally time for him to make a movie that his kids could watch before they are 40 years old. Inspired by films he saw as a child like E.T. and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Krasinski said he’s been toying with the idea for seven years based on the concept of childhood imaginary friends.

Still in the middle of finishing his director’s cut, Krasinski said he wasn’t able to show much, but he did present a behind-the-scenes featurette that revealed the look, performances and talent he has pulled together: “Let’s be real honest: I’m on the same stage as Adele, I couldn’t come in empty-handed.”

The featurette revealed a voice cast that includes Matt Damon, Jon Stewart, Krasinski’s wife Emily Blunt, Maya Rudolph, Sam Rockwell, Sebastian Maniscalco, Christopher Meloni, Richard Jenkins, Awkwafina and Vince Vaughn. They join previously announced castmembers including Krasinski, Cailey Fleming, Ryan Reynolds, Fiona Shaw, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Alan S. Kim, Steve Carell and Bobby Moynihan. (“This cast is insane,” Krasinski boasted. “I know for a fact that I will never get a better cast.”)

Krasinski described the film as centering on a young girl (Fleming) who goes through a troubling experience, after which she starts to see everyone’s imaginary friends who have been left behind after their real-life pals grew up. The film follows what she does with that superpower.

“Imaginary friends are not just these adorable creations, they are time capsules for our hopes, dreams, ambitions,” the director explained. “I wanted people to leave this movie believing in something bigger and believing in something beautiful. It’s very real and it’s very possible.”

Reynolds figured prominently in the clip, appearing several times to describe the film and his role in it. “This is a movie that John and I have been talking about for years now. It feels like a live-action Pixar film,” he said, adding that his character plays the accomplice to Fleming’s character, and the two strike up an unexpected friendship.

If also has a new release date of May 24, 2024. Krasinski directed from a script he wrote. His hustle also included producing alongside Reynolds, Allyson Seeger and Andrew Form, with executive producers John J. Kelly, Alexa Ginsburg and George Dewey.

What if everything you believed as a kid was real? From the imagination of John Krasinski, enter a world you have to believe to see. Watch the new trailer for #IFMovie - Only in theatres May 2024.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, John Krasinski, Cailey Fleming, Fiona Shaw, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr., Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Maya Rudolph, Jon Stewart, Bobby Moynihan, Sam Rockwell, Sebastian Maniscalco, Christopher Meloni, Richard Jenkins, Awkwafina, and Steve Carell.

From writer and director John Krasinski, IF is about a girl who discovers that she can see everyone’s imaginary friends — and what she does with that superpower — as she embarks on a magical adventure to reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids. IF stars Ryan Reynolds, John Krasinski, Cailey Fleming, Fiona Shaw, and the voices of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr. and Steve Carell alongside many more as the wonderfully unique characters that reflect the incredible power of a child’s imagination.

It looks cute enough. Dunno if it has much staying power, however. Meaning I dunno how memorable it'll be in the long run.

I like him but in these types of flicks he tends to just play a variation of Van Wylder or Deadpool.

This may be the closest we get to a live action Calvin and Hobbes movie.

That was actually Jojo Rabbit, and Hobbs was Hitler.
