Jordan Peele (director, Get Out) has signed with Universal to write, produce, and direct another film. The film is being categorized as a “social thriller”. Could this “social thriller” be another Get Out? Maybe. I have yet to see Get Out. To be honest, I’m not in a hurry. My preferred type of horror film is the supernatural type. Still, I think it’s pretty cool that Get Out grabbed the horror genre some headlines for making money. Cool.
Anyway, Peele’s new film will have a large budget. Reported to be 5 times larger than what he had for Get Out, which is not always a good thing. Trying too hard is a common problem in horror movies. Hopefully, Peele will focus on the story/characters over trying to sell t-shirts/collectibles/action-sequences. Good luck!
