Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are bringing their love to the big screen!

The Mary Poppins Returns star and her Office alum husband are teaming up for A Quiet Place, Krasinski's major studio directorial debut, which he will also write as well as star in with his wife, Deadline reports.

And while the duo did technically both appear in 2011's The Muppets, they never actually had any scenes together, so this is uncharted territory in a sense -- and something Krasinski has been looking forward to!

In December, the 37-year-old actor and filmmaker told ET that he'd love to direct his wife in something, should the right project come along.

"We've always wanted to work together, but it's just about finding the right story and also finding a story that's unique and specific enough that the story itself will be a better story than just the idea of us working together," he explained. "And that's somewhat difficult to find, if that makes any sense."

"We want the narrative to be the movie itself, not overwhelmingly just that we're married and we worked together," Krasinski added.

Story details for A Quiet Place have yet to be revealed and production is not slated to begin until this fall. However, the couple sure has been keeping busy.

Krasinski directed last year's The Hollars, and served as executive producer on Manchester by the Sea, while Blunt is gearing up to bring Mary Poppins to a new generation in December of next year.
