Director Jordan Peele made a surprise announcement on his Twitter feed Tuesday, in the form of a creepy new movie poster promising “a new nightmare” next year.
Peele shared the poster for a movie he’s calling Us, due out in March 2019. The director and writer for Get Out offered no additional info about the movie outside of what was on the poster, but Deadline reported Tuesday that Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Winston Duke (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War), and Elizabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Men) were in talks to star in the new movie, but there is little info available about the film right now.
Peele will be the writer and director of the film Deadline called a “social thriller” when it reported on the movie in May 2017. “A new nightmare from the mind of Academy Award winner Jordan Peele,” is the tag line running across the top of the poster released on Tuesday. The movie will be produced by his production company, Monkeypaw Productions, which also produced Peele’s other projects including, Key & Peele, Keanu, and Get Out.
Released in 2017, Get Out was Peele’s directorial debut starring Daniel Kaluuya (Black Panther, Black Mirror). The critically-acclaimed horror movie that looked at the experience of being black in the United States won dozens of awards from film and critic organizations. Peele took home the big prize, an Academy Award, earlier this year for Best Original Screenplay. The film also took in $255 million in gross ticket sales worldwide.
The run-up to the film will likely see more comparisons to Get Out, but earlier this year, he said fans shouldn’t expect that: In an interview with Collider, he said, “I love the world of this movie. But to be honest, I would never do a sequel if I didn’t think it was going to beat the original.”
The success of Get Out spawned a wave of response from fans including a wealth of fan art and had people asking the question if they could be hypnotized like in the movie. Get Out was such a success that it was re-released in theaters a year after its debut.
