Nope, no way. Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror film will not be anything like his first two.
At least that’s what one of the film’s stars–Keke Palmer–told Entertainment Weekly during a recent interview.
Nope–written, directed and produced by Peele–is “nothing like Get Out or Us,” Palmer said. “It’s a totally different vibe. It’s about something different–the themes are totally different, and the tone is totally different. This has a lot of ’70s tones–which I think is exciting.”
The actor added that Peele “has done a great job in all of his films of talking about something. Get Out had to do with a conversation around racism, but then Us is about class. With Nope, you’ll take whatever you take from that. With everything he does, there will be Black leads, but the gag isn’t always that you’re Black.”
Nope–slated to hit theaters July 22–also stars Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun as residents of a lonely gulch of inland California who witness what appears to be an alien invasion. The film co-stars Michael Wincott, Brandon Perea, Barbara Ferreira and MoCap performer Terry Notary.
The Universal Pictures entry is described as a “reimagining of the summer movie” and an “expansive horror epic”.
