Nope, he’s not going to rest on past accomplishments.
Jordan Peele is already looking forward to his next project, even as his upcoming horror-s/f thriller Nope prepares to hit theaters this Friday, July 22.
The Oscar-winning filmmaker told Deadline that he plans to continue telling the same kind of stories that have worked for him so far. The man behind such hits as Get Out and Us said he will “stay within this realm that I love. It’s the only way I know how to view the world and how to tell stories.”
His future projects will feature “a little bit of horror, a little bit of comedy. I’m always going to try and give you a big show.”
Peele’s next project after Nope is Wendell & Wild, a stop-motion film set for an October debut on Netflix. This film–written by Peele and Henry Selick (who will direct the feature)–is an animated tale about “scheming demon brothers Wendell (Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (Peele), who enlist the aid of 13-year-old Kat Elliot to summon them to the Land of the Living.”
But, before that, Nope–written, directed and produced by Peele–will “follow the residents of a lonely gulch in inland California as they bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery,” according to the brief synopsis. That discovery will deal with an alien invasion–but how all that will play out, only Peele knows.
Nope–from Universal Pictures–stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott and Barbie Ferreira. Robert Graf serves as executive producer.
