Jordan Peele is on fire right now, following the insane success his directorial debut, Get Out. Get Out, the first of his planned social thrillers, only cost $4.5 Million to make and has gone on to gross $230 Million worldwide. As a result, Universal Pictures struck a first-look film deal with Peele's Monkeypaw Productions. The deal not only gives the studio first dibs on any movie created by Jordan Peele, but also has him producing other titles for the studio, including more micro-budget horror projects with Get Out producer Jason Blum. Peele also just signed on to help create and produce Lovecraft Country for HBO.
If you loved Get Out and were wondering when you will have the chance to check out Peele's next film, wonder no more! Deadline reports that Universal has set a release date of March 15, 2019 for Peele's Untitled Social Thriller. Peele will write, direct, and produce his second film from an original idea.
At this point, I look forward to anything from Jordan Peele. The man has proven his storytelling genius, not only in Get Out, but also in Keanu, which he co-wrote with Alex Rubens, and Comedy Central's sketch show Key and Peele. If anything, this news is disappointing... only because now we know we have to wait until 2019! Bummer.
