Following up on the success of Get Out, Jordan Peele is headed towards box office gold once again with his next movie, Us.
“For my second feature, I wanted to create a monster mythology,” commented Peele to Entertainment Weekly. “I wanted to do something that was more firmly in the horror genre but still held on to my love of movies that are twisted but fun.”
The new movie is written and directed by Peele and stars Lupita Nyong’o, Elisabeth Moss, Winston Duke, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tim Heidecker, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Madison Curry, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon.
Details for the flick have been pretty hush hush but EW did reveal some upcoming plot info for the film:
“The story is set in the present day and follows Adelaide and Gabe Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke) as they take their kids to Adelaide’s old childhood beachside home in Northern California for the summer. After a day at the beach with the Tyler family (which includes Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker), Adelaide — who’s haunted by a lingering trauma from her past — becomes increasingly more paranoid that something bad will happen to her family. As night falls, the Wilsons see four figures holding hands and standing silently at the bottom of their driveway…”
And of course, we cannot wait to see Shahadi Wright Joseph and Evan Alex on screen. Joseph, who portrays Zora Wilson in the film, is known for her roles in The Lion King remake, and TV movie, Hairspray Live! Alex, who portrays Jason Wilson in the movie, is known for his roles in Kidding and TV series, Mani.
Make sure to mark your calendars for March 15th. This is one movie that you don’t want to miss!
