Spring 2018 just started, but is it too soon to fast-forward to next March? The 2019 release calendar is stacked.
Jordan Peele just added his "Get Out" follow-up to the schedule. He's hot off his best screenplay Oscar for that horror drama. He's also hot off "Key & Peele" and -- we shall never forget! -- "Keanu." His writing/directing filmography is still fairly short, but it's all win.
So fans were excited to see news of Peele's next project, "Us," which he will again write, direct, and produce.
"Us" only has a tentative cast at this point, but it's all A-list -- Lupita Nyong'o is already in talks to star, Variety reports, with Elisabeth Moss and Winston Duke (M'Baku in "Black Panther") eyed for two other top roles.
The Hollywood Reporter said the film follows two couples, one black and one white. Nyong'o and Duke would be one couple, with Moss' other half still to come.
Here's the poster Peele shared himself:
"A New Nightmare from the Mind of Academy Award Winner Jordan Peele" is one hell of a way to promote your movie.— The Brian Duffield (@BrianDuffield) May 9, 2018
Yes. LOVE that tease right at the top. His mind is part of the promotion.
"Us" will be the first film under Jordan Peele's first-look deal with Universal Pictures. The studio has already given "Us" a release date of March 15, 2019.
Fans are ready:
"Captain Marvel," "How to Train Your Dragon 3," a new "Godzilla" movie, and Disney's live-action "Dumbo" are also currently scheduled for next March.
