After the enormous success of his directorial debut, Get Out, Jordan Peele is already drumming up hype for his follow-up: A “new nightmare” titled Us.
Taking to social media, Peele shared the film’s first poster, revealing that Us will hit theaters in March 2019.
According to Variety sources, Lupita Nyong’o is in talks to star, with Elisabeth Moss and Black Panther’s Winston Duke also rumored for lead roles.
As for plot details, we’ll have to be patient. The story is currently under wraps, though we do know that Peele will write and direct the script and that it will contain horror elements. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, Peele hinted:
“One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favorite. That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out. That said, I want to make a completely different movie. I want to address something different than race in the next one.”
Following Get Out’s triumphant reception, scoring the number one spot at the box office in February 2017 and grossing $225 million worldwide, it’s pretty certain that this will be a film worth waiting for.
