Paramount, which distributed the horror movie, is in talks to pick up the project.
The plot will adapt a short story by Cecil Castellucci titled 'We Have Always Lived on Mars' that revolves around a woman who is among the very few descendants of a Martian colony long-abandoned by Earth following a cataclysm. The woman one day finds she can breathe the air on Mars, upending her world and that of her fellow colonists.
Krasinski is not expected to feature in the follow-up, but will serve as producer, alongside Allyson Seeger.
No writer is on board yet.
