"I was already dealing with all the fears of being a new father – fears of how to keep my daughters safe and how to be a good dad, when this came to me and so I related to it on a deeply personal level," Krasinski said in a statement.

A QUIET PLACE, also starring Blunt, follows a family of four who must live life in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.

"I felt that within the basic story was such an interesting, and terrifying, metaphor for what it takes to be a parent. I was an open nerve emotionally then, so it was a very powerful time to start imagining how two parents might try to protect their children by doing the impossible, by living without making a sound.

"It just made my imagination explode. There was so much about the idea that I wanted to explore," he added.
