For those who’ve been patiently waiting to hear if Jordan Peele would return to the director’s chair, the wait is now over. According to Variety, the filmmaker is set to return next year with a new movie titled Us. Last year, Peele’s directorial debut film Get Out was an incredible success both at the box office and amongst critics. The film grossed $255 million worldwide, which is an incredible feat for a horror film. It went on to be nominated for several awards, with Peele winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
Details on the plot are currently unknown, however, judging from the teaser poster it may very well be another horror film. Peele had previously commented that his next film would be tonally similar to Get Out while this time addressing something other than race. The film is scheduled for a March 2019 release. Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther) is in talks to star, with Elisabeth Moss (Girl, Interrupted) eyed for another lead role. Peele will write and direct Us.
