Jordan Peele to shoot "Get Out" follow-up this year

  • Posted 3 weeks Ago

Jordan Peele, the Academy Award nominated director behind Get Out, took the film industry by storm last year and now looks set to start work on the follow-up.

Peele says he's aiming to go for something "tonally" similar to Get Out in his next film, which is said to begin production real soon. He recently told The Hollywood Reporter: "I am currently writing it, and I’ll direct for Universal this year".

He went on to say: "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. 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".

If all goes to plan the film is expected to be released in 2019. Watch out!
