Jordan Peele Will Shoot New Movie This Year

Jordan Peele confirms that he's looking to film his second movie as director this year, and that tonally, "it should resemble Get Out"...

In terms of movie directorial debuts, Get Out is going to be a hard one to beat. A huge commercial and critical smash, made for an economical budget, that’s attracted Oscar nominations? Writer/director Jordan Peele has set himself a high bar.

He’d previously inked a deal that would see him making a bunch of films for Universal, and he’s confirmed now that the plan is to get his new movie going this year. “I am currently writing it, and I’ll direct for Universal this year,” he said of his next film to THR. “I’m just trying to entertain myself again.”

Details on the project itself are scarce, but he did add that “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, we suspect Peele will have his new movie ready in 2019. We’ll keep you posted, of course, as we hear more…
