John Krasinski and Sam Mendes Reunite?

January 24, 2008 by  

John KrasinskiEW is reporting that John Krasinski and SNL star Maya Rudolph are rumored to be the leads in a new comedy directed by “American Beauty” director, Sam Mendes and written by Dave Eggers and his wife Vendela Vida. “The untitled film [from Focus Films] follows a couple, pregnant with their first child, as they travel America looking for the ideal place to settle down.”

This won’t be the first time Krasinski and Mendes have worked together. Mendes directed “Jarhead” in which John has a small cameo.

    I think one of the places they should film is a little town in the pacific northwest just east of Portland in the foothills of Mt. Hood. Is that to specific? I wonder if thats already written into the script?Hum….

    Sam Mendes and Dave Eggers and comedy? Hmmm. Interesting mix.

    Oh how I long for the Sam Mendes of American Beauty. Where did he go?

    The film is entitled “This Must Be The Place” according to Variety

    Maya Rudolph seems like an odd choice to pair with JK, although at least it is not Mandy Moore. Certainly is an interesting concept.
