Jim Halpert used to spend his workdays daydreaming about Pam and playing pranks on Dwight. But nowadays, he is keeping pretty busy.

John Krasinski, best known for his role of Jim on The Office, has become not only an acting sensation, but a writing and directing one, as well. The 39-year-old star recently gained acclaim for his horror film, A Quiet Place, in which he shared the screen with his real-life wife, Emily Blunt.

Now, ScreenRant reports that he will be sharing the screen with another beautiful Hollywood A-lister. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Krasinski is in talks to write, direct, and star in the comedy movie Imaginary Friends, co-starring Ryan Reynolds. The film follows a man who has the ability to see and hear other people's imaginary friends. The twist? He is tasked with stopping imaginary entities who become forgotten from turning to the dark side.

It is unclear who would play the lead role, but one can only hope that Reynolds is an imaginary friend. Could you imagine a Deadpool-like invisible buddy following you around all the time? There are bound to be some dark laughs.

Looks Dunder Mifflin is in the rear-view mirror for ol’ Jim now.
