Jordan Peele announces new movie, ‘Us'
Jordan Peele announced his new movie Tuesday, his first since the Oscar-winning “Get Out.”
The director failed to give any information about his new project, titled “Us,” but shared the poster on Twitter: a pair of heads in smoky black against a dirty white background.
“A new nightmare,” the description reads.
Lupita Nyong’o (“Black Panther”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Winston Duke (“Black Panther”) are all circling roles in the film, according to Variety.
Peele signed a first-look deal with Universal last May, just after the wild success of “Get Out,” which opened No. 1 at the domestic box office and grossed an eventual $255 million worldwide.
“Get Out” earned a Best Picture Oscar nomination — one of just a few horror films to do so — while Peele became just the third person to be nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay in their directorial debut.
“Us” is scheduled for a March 15 release.
