Steve Carrell and John Krasinski are reuniting on a new film and my mind is going a mile an hour. That fast.
Full disclosure, it’s not a The Office reunion. But it is the next best thing.
John Krasinski is directing, writing and producing a new film titled If, that follows a child’s journey to rediscover their imagination.
Starring in the film is none other than The Office co-star Steve Carrell. Alongside him is Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Louis Gossett Jr. (Watchmen), Alan S. Kim (Minari) and Cailey Fleming (The Walking Dead).

Krasinski will co-produce the film through his company Sunday Night with Reynolds and his company Maximum Effort.
The star cast are set to hit the screens on November 17th, 2023.
Office pals Krasinski and Carrell haven’t worked together in an official capacity since their time at Scranton’s favourite paper supplier.
Since the series, both actors have gone on to star in, write and direct ground breaking projects.
Most notably, Krasinski directed and starred in A Quiet Place and directed A Quiet Place – Part II. For the last few years he has also starred in the series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. Later this year, he will voice Superman in DC League of Superpets.
Carrell turned quite a page, leaning towards more dramatic roles. He starred in Adam McKay’s The Big Short and Vice as well as the father of a heroin addict in Beautiful Boy. However, he has since returned to his comedy roots in Netflix’s Space Force.
The popularity of The Office continues to astonish, even though the series finished in 2013 and Carrell left the series even earlier.
Thanks to streaming, new fans are finding the show constantly. So we can only hope that this could lead to a Dunder-Mifflin reunion in the future.
What can I say: “I’m optimistic. Because every day I get a little more desperate.”
