Megan Thee Stallion is already pretty busy, what with her music career blossoming as she pursues her degree and embarks on a television hosting gig later this year. However, that hasn’t stopped her from branching out into even more possible careers, including screenwriting. Megan announced she has been writing a horror movie in her spare time last Halloween. Now, in a new profile in Marie Claire, she reveals her perfect partner to help bring that film to life: Jordan Peele. Marie Claire’s Lola Ogunnaike writes:
As if she’s not juggling enough, Megan is currently writing a horror movie. She’s a die-hard fan of the genre and has grown tired of hackneyed reboots of ’80s classics: “How many times can you remake Halloween?” A collaboration with Oscar-winning writer Jordan Peele would be nice, she says.
Meg would be hard-pressed to find a better collaborator. Peele became known as a horror maestro with his breakout 2017 feature debut, Get Out, then solidified that reputation with the eerie Us in 2019. This year, he’s following up as writer/producer of the 2020 revival of the 1992 cult classic Candyman. Even his trailers for the films are creepy, scaring fans with suspenseful remakes of classic hip-hop and R&B hits like “I Got 5 On It” and “Say My Name.” Megan showed off her own horror chops with her two-episode Hottieween web series, so there’s plenty for Peele to work with too. A collaboration between the two just might be a match made in hip-hop horror heaven.
