Jordan Peele has unveiled a title and a poster for his next movie, the follow-up to his Oscar-nominated hit Get Out. The new pic will be called US, and it will bow wide on its already announced release date of March 15, 2019.
Sources say Lupita Nyong’o is in talks and Winston Duke and Elisabeth Moss are being eyed to join the film, which Peele is writing and directing. The plot is being kept under wraps but has been referred to as a social thriller based on Peele’s original idea.
Peele is producing US via his Monkeypaw Productions with Ian Cooper alongside Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum.
The movie is the first in Monkeypaw’s first-look production deal with Universal. Peele will also produce a wide range of films for the studio including several micro-budgeted projects on which he will partner with Blum as he did on Get Out, which grossed $255 million worldwide and scored four Oscar nominations, winning for Peele’s Original Screenplay.
