You didn’t think Jordan Peele was going to take a long break after the success of ‘Get Out‘ did you? Nah, he’s riding this wave of awesomeness all the way to the bank.
First known for his sketch comedy work on Comedy Central’s ‘Key & Peele,’ the 39-year-old filmmaker finally got the opportunity to make his passion project after 10 years in development. ‘Get Out’ was a huge success, it received great reviews from critics, made over $250 million worldwide and earned Peele an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
Now he’s following it all up with a movie titled Us. He released the first poster for the film this week. He didn’t provide many details on the film, but we are hearing Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) are in talks for lead roles.
That’s honestly all we know about this project, and it’s probably for the best. The most talented directors like to surprise you.
It’s expected to hit theaters in March of 2019. We will keep you posted.
