Stephen King has shown himself to be a true fan of ‘A Silent Place’, so much so that he even had close contact with director John Krasinski, who finally detailed his interaction with the established horror author.
Now that A Silent Place: Part 2 has reached some cinemas around the world (in Mexico it has its premiere in IMAX theaters), John Krasinski has once again become a very sought-after man, being the director and writer of the film.

Now, Krasinski has finally given a public response to the praise and not only that, but he has also given more details about the contact he had with the writer, ensuring that the communication also took place through emails.

The director explained a little more about the cyber encounter, assuring that “the response to the first film was so overwhelming […]. Being from Boston and a fan of hers, he was not only incredibly nice publicly, but We then had an email exchange where he was very specific about what he loved about the movie and I was totally and completely blown away. I have not accepted his Red Sox tickets, but I definitely will one day, “concluded the actor who gained popularity thanks to his participation in The Office.
