Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele has hinted at making a Get Out sequel. While on the press tour for his latest film NOPE, the comedian and writer was asked about the possibility of making a second film, and his answer has us ready to return to the sunken place. Chatting to the Associated Press, the filmmaker shared he receives countless questions about whether he will create a follow-up to the 2017 Oscar winner. “Never say never,” he said. “There’s certainly a lot to talk about left. We’ll see.”
In is coy response, Peele added he still wants to create movies “that grapple with big societal issues” even after dropping three in a row, “I feel like I’m off to the races. I just don’t know if I could limit how many films I have that are me. I’m starting to lose sight of what I would be doing if I wasn’t doing movies like this. So I would say the project has extended.”
As a quick refresher, Get Out follows the story of Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya) meeting his girlfriend’s parents for the first time in upstate New York. At first, the parents seem a little odd, but Washington then learns they have a nightmarish system of ‘transplanting the brains of old people into others’ bodies, granting them preferred physical characteristics and a twisted form of immortality.’ The film was widely admired for its unique style and storytelling, labelled as the greatest screenplay of the 21st century by the Writers Guild of America.
While we wait for a sequel, fans can catch the science fiction flick NOPE, which will reunite Peele and Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya and stars Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun. The synopsis for Nope is stated as: “After random objects falling from the sky result in the death of their father, ranch-owning siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood attempt to capture video evidence of an unidentified flying object with the help of tech salesman Angel Torres and documentarian Antlers Holst.”
It sounds like we could be in for some more classic Peele. Check out the latest trailer below.
