John Krasinski Considers Two “Something” Films

“Captain America” isn’t the only project he’s been linked to lately.

John Krasinski (TV’s “The Office,” “It’s Complicated”) is in negotiations to join romantic comedy “Something Borrowed” for Alcon Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Emily Giffin’s 2005 debut novel, Ginnifer Goodwin plays a New York attorney who has just entered her 30’s and becomes involved with her best friend’s fiance. Krasinski would play her friend and confidant.

Alcon also picked up film rights to “Something Blue”, the second book in the series. Krasinski’s character is only a supporting role in the first film but becomes the male lead in the second so the deal on offer is for both pictures.

Luke Greenfield is directing with filming to kick off in the Spring. Hilary Swank, Aaron Lubin, Pamela Schein Murphy, Molly Smith, Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson are producing.
