After winning an Oscar earlier this year for Get Out, Jordan Peele is getting back behind the director’s chair for Us, his next social-themed horror venture that Universal Pictures has set for release on March 15, 2019, says THR.
Details are being kept deep in suburbia, but the pic is said to center on two couples, one white, one black. If a deal is made, Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o (below) would play one couple, while Elisabeth Moss would play part of the other couple.
Peele is once again directing from his own script. He is also producing via his Monkeypaw Productions alongside Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum. Also producing is Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper.
Nyong’o, who won an Oscar for her work in 12 Years a Slave, was last seen in Marvel’s Black Panther. Duke also appeared in Black Panther. Moss, who is currently starring on season two of the acclaimed Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale, also starred in “Mad Men”. Nyong’o is said to be in negotiations, while Duke and Moss’ potential deals are in earlier stages.
