Fans of “The Office” who wished for a John Krasinski and Steve Carell reunion are getting their way, but what “If” one was the director?

“If”, directed, written, and produced by John Krasinski will feature the first reunion of two Dunder Mifflin alumni in one of Krasinski’s films. The last time the two worked together on a professional project was the tear-jerking “Goodbye, Micheal” episode of “The Office” that aired over 10 years ago on April 28, 2011.

“If,” starring Ryan Reynolds, is about “a child’s journey to rediscover their imagination,” according to Deadline.

“Ah, what if one day I could assemble my dream cast? What … IF,” Krasinski wrote on Instagram, captioning a picture of the cast, including Carell.

Krasinski will produce the film through his company, Sunday Night. George Dewey is slated to be the executive producer and Reynolds also will produce via his company, Maximum Effort.


Other notable members of the cast include Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), 9-year-old Alan Kim (“Minari”), Fiona Shaw (“Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”), Cailey Fleming (“The Walking Dead”), and Louis Gossett Jr. (“An Officer and a Gentleman.”)

The film is set to be released on November 17, 2023.
