“I am currently writing it, and I'll direct for Universal this year,” the three-time Oscar nominee revealed to The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m just trying to entertain myself again.”
While little is known about the upcoming project, Peele went on to add that he wants to “focus on stories that are true to me.”
Fans of Get Out can look forward to something similar, however, as the writer/director/producer continued, “One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favorite. 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.”
Again, Peele will be working with Universal Pictures on his forthcoming film, the same studio that distributed Get Out.
