Get Out Get Out Get Out is what both people on the internet say when you ask them what the best film of last year was and also what my flatmate says when I sometimes walk into his room unannounced and catch him ‘unawares’. Still, focus on the first point, because Get Out is good - lord knows I’ve banged on about it on this website before.
But what is the film’s genius creator, Jordan Peele, up to next? That’s what’s on everyone’s minds: how do you follow one of the best films of 2017? Well, there have been rumours of a potential sequel, but nothing concrete, as of yet, so what’s on the slate in a more confident form?
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Peele revealed his future plans, and what to expect. He said:
“One thing I know is that this is my genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favourite.
“That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out.
“That said, I want to make a completely different movie.
“I want to address something different than race in the next one.”
What exact shape that will eventually form is unclear, but we do know that he has an ‘untitled social thriller’ in the development stages, and we could be seeing the final product as soon as March 2019, which is obviously very exciting. He told the mag:
“My next film, I am currently writing it and I’ll direct for Universal this year, I’m just trying to entertain myself again.”
He’s also working on a few TV projects, including a reboot of The Twilight Zone and an original series about vigilante Nazi hunters in the 1970s, so he’s got himself a busy schedule in the coming years. Of course, whereas this may be hard work for him, it can only be good news for us, and in particular me. Because:
GIVE ME MORE JORDAN PEELE IN ANY FORM PLEASE, I REQUIRE MY FIX IMMEDIATELY AND FOREVER.
