Sounds like this film was a team effort.
Nope–Jordan Peele’s third foray into horror, following Get Out and Us–hits theaters in about a month now, and a new featurette dropped this week to show how everyone in the cast and crew contributed mightily to the finished product. Check out the video–courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter–on this page.’
The Universal Pictures entry–landing on big screens July 22–turned out to be “a bigger adventure” than Peele’s previous films. “I tried to write a script I didn’t know how to pull off,” Peele said, “and then assembled a team to help me pull it off. Every single department is firing off these huge, big swings.”
Peele added that “every day of this shoot we were making something new and special–something that is a testament to why I love movies. I’ll be talking about the days we made this movie forever.”
Nope–written, directed and produced by Peele–follows the residents of “a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery,” according to the brief logline. That “discovery”–as seen in a couple of clips and images–appears to have something to do with an alien invasion.
The film stars Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Keke Palmer (Hustlers), Steven Yeun (Minari), Michael Wincott (Westworld) and Brando Perea (The OA).
