"The Girl on the Train" could be the woman sitting next to you on the F.

Actress Emily Blunt has moved to Park Slope with her actor husband, John Krasinski, locals who live near them told DNAinfo New York.

The two bought a six-bedroom house in Center Slope near Prospect Park for $6 million late last year, records show, and moved in this summer after a multi-month renovation, neighbors said.

Blunt is currently starring in "The Girl on the Train," which opened in theaters Friday and was the top performing movie at the box office over the weekend, Variety reported. Her previous films include "Sicario," "The Adjustment Bureau" and "The Devil Wears Prada."

Krasinski, who played Jim Halpert on the TV comedy series "The Office," recently directed and acted in the movie "The Hollars." He's due to star in the Amazon series "Jack Ryan," based on the Tom Clancy novels.

The couple should blend in well in stroller-filled Park Slope. They have an infant and a toddler and Blunt joked about breastfeeding and "pumping and dumping" (getting rid of breast milk after drinking booze) in a recent interview with In Style magazine. Like legions of other Park Slope parents, "date night" for the couple consists of going out to dinner and talking about anything but babies, Krasinski told People magazine.

Blunt and Krasinski sold their six-bedroom Los Angeles home to reality TV star Kendall Jenner for $6.5 million earlier this year, and a weekend getaway house they own in Ojai, Calif., is on the market for $3.25 million, according to Variety.

It's not clear how long they'll be sticking around Brooklyn. Blunt is set to appear in a reboot of "Mary Poppins" and the actress told In Style that her family will relocate temporarily to London during shooting.

However, they'll be in town for the next few days at least. Blunt is scheduled to host "Saturday Night Live" this weekend.

Blunt's publicist declined to comment for this story.

The Blunt-Krasinski household joins several other film and TV stars in the neighborhood.

Park Slope is also home (or at least the site of their most recent real estate purchase) for Sir Patrick Stewart, Chloe Sevigny, famed Park Slope Food Co-op members Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, and of course longtime locals John Turturro and Steve Buscemi.
