The Oscar-winning director Jordan Peele has taken to Twitter to confirm his next feature. Titled Us the film is to be a “new nightmare”, but further details are sparse.
Variety has reported that Lupita Nyong’o, Elisabeth Moss and Winston Duke are currently in talks to star, so the cast is already shaping up to be impressive.
The poster is a simple black and white and shows two faces facing away from each other. Read into it what you will, but we’re expecting this to be another politically and socially-driven flick. When speaking about the film he was working on this year, Peele previous said:
“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.”
We can’t wait to hear more about Us, so let’s hope we learn of a synopsis soon.
More as it comes!
