I think most of us are huge fans of Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out and are keen to see what he does next. Although this news is exciting, it doesn’t tell us too much information about his next endeavour.
What we do know is that it will be another original genre film, so that rules out the possibility of it being a Get Out sequel. However, it’s great to learn that it will be in the same vein as his breakout hit. To THR, in full, Peele says:
“You know; I think it’s important to focus on stories that are true to me. My next film, I am currently writing it and I’ll direct for Universal this year; I’m just trying to entertain myself again.
One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun, genre of intrigue is my favourite. 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.”
After the brilliance of Get Out, it’s impossible not to be excited about Peele’s next effort. A new original genre film? Yes please!
We’ll let you know more as we learn it!
