Jordan Peele recently announced the next phase in his film directing career by revealing the name for his next work, “Us”.
Not much is being revealed about the plot at this point, but Lupita Nyong’o is set to star, with Elisabeth Moss being named in connection with another leading role. Winston Duke, who broke out in his supporting role as M’Baku in Black Panther, has also been attached to this project.
The announcement came in true millennium fashion, via his social media accounts.
“Us” is the first project for Peele under his first-look deal with Universal Pictures, which he signed, along with his Monkeypaw Productions, last spring. “Get Out“, his directorial debut, opened at No. 1 at the domestic box office and grossed $255 million globally.
Universal has already dated the film for March 15, 2019.
