From top left, the cast list goes as follows: Jordan Peele; the already-confirmed Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther); Elizabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale); Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman); Anna Diop (Titans); Tim Heidecker (Ant Man and the Wasp); Evan Alex (Five Blocks Away); Shahadi Wright Joseph (who will voice young Nala in the upcoming The Lion King live-action reboot); and Cali and Noelle Sheldon (whose names hardcore Friends fans may recognize as the twins that played Ross and Rachel’s baby, Emma).
While plot details remain slim, we do know (thanks to the official poster) that it’s been dubbed “a new nightmare.” We also know it will include horror elements. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year, Peele disclosed, “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.”
The Oscar-winning director also says Us will not center around race, but something entirely different. It’s probably safe to assume that, given the film’s title, its genre, and the fact identical twins have been cast, we could be looking at something that’s more aligned with M. Night Shyamalan’s Split than The Parent Trap.
Us will hit theaters nationwide in March 2019. More information to follow.
