Dave Franco to Direct Wife Alison Brie in His Horror Directorial Debut

Dave Franco will direct wife Alison Brie in his first time behind the camera

Dave Franco is trying his luck behind the camera with wife Alison Brie by his side.

The couple, who got married in 2017, are set to work together in The Rental, a horror thriller written by Franco and Joe Swanberg, according to Deadline. The movie follows two couples — Brie and Dan Stevens alongside Sheila Vand and Jeremy Allen White — as they go on a celebratory weekend trip to a secluded cabin.

Franco told Deadline he “couldn’t be more excited… to be working with such an amazing group of actors for my directorial debut.”

Franco, 33, and Brie, 36, last worked together in The Disaster Artist, which also served as the first time Franco worked with brother James Franco.

The move is similar to John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, who starred together for the first time in last year’s A Quiet Place while Krasinski made his debut behind the camera. The thriller went on to have wild success and the two have signed back on for the sequel, which Krasinski is writing now.

Brie recently opened up about her marriage to Franco in an interview with The Sunday Times, where she described their partnership as “super-mellow.”

“We spend time together at night. We just like to hang out,” she said. “Having a really supportive partner in my life and knowing that he loves me no matter what. I’ve found my person.”
