Fresh off his Academy Award win for Get Out, Jordan Peele is ready to tackle his next project. The director shared the poster for the project on Twitter, announcing it with a tagline for the ages: “A new nightmare from the mind of Academy Award winner Jordan Peele.”
Not only will Peele once again write the screenplay for Us, he already has a phenomenal cast connected to bring his new horror to life. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will star Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss on opposing sides of another suburban terror tale:
Details are being kept deep in suburbia, but the pic is said to center on two couples, one white, one black. If a deal is made, Duke and Nyong’o would play one couple, while Moss would play part of the other couple.
Nyong’o is said to be in negotiations, while Duke and Moss’ potential deals are in earlier stages.
The Duke in question is Black Panther standout Winston Duke, who is currently still riding high on his Marvel success with Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
It is safe to say that any project that Peele chose to follow Get Out with would be an instant attention-grabber. But the fact that he is once again sticking to his writing shows plenty of confidence and a possible desire to top himself. It also gives fans something fresh to enjoy in March 2019 between Marvel’s major releases, the next Godzilla, and Tim Burton’s Dumbo film. We need that variety at the theaters.
