Michael Bay has left the goofy robots of Transformers in his rearview and sets his sights on new projects. Though he’s one of the most powerful men in cinema, his films have always been lacking in the critical acclaim department.

Krasinski’s career has slowed since the beloved series ended two years ago, but his intelligent and likable persona is just what the film is looking for. Other actors rumored to be a part of the film include Woody Harrelson and J.K. Simmons who just scored an Oscar nomination for his performance as a sadistic drum teacher in Whiplash.
