Jordan Peele Announces New Film Called ‘Us’; Will Release March 2019
Shortly after winning an Academy Award for writing last year’s breakout horror hit Get Out, Jordan Peele announces his second feature film: Us.
Peele revealed the teaser poster for his film through his official Twitter page less than an hour ago. You can see it below:

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Peele will once again write and direct a movie he created based on an original concept. Like Get Out, Monkeypaw Productions and Blumhouse are producing the feature film. Very little is known about the movie’s plot other than the fact that it will star a pair of suburban couples — one white, and one black — and will likely be heavily drvien by social commentary as Get Out was. In talks to star are Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, and Elizabeth Moss. Of these three actors, Nyong’o is the closest to officially signing on.
Us releases sometime in March 2019.
