Jordan Peele has become quite the acclaimed director with films such as Get Out and Us. Deadline just recently reported that he is already working on his next theatrical release together with Universal Pictures. So far, we knew very little about the project, but we were able to get some first details on what we can expect from his next film.
The story will focus on a man between 20 to 32 old who lives on the outskirts of Los Angeles. He is a Walmart employee in the electronics section, who is described as perceptive, sincere, and “clutch”. They are currently looking to cast someone either with a Latino or Native American background for the role. This film is the third of the four social thrillers he teased a while back.
The best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings and what we are capable of especially when we get together. I’ve been working on these premises about these different social demons, these innately human monsters that are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact, and each one of my movies is going to be about a different one of these social demons.
These social demons could be connected to our main protagonists’ heritage or could be playing on entering society after leaving high school. Living in L.A., he might be an unsuccessful actor trying to get by with his job until that audition that could be the one. He might have to face some tough life changes when entering the industry. They plan to start filming from April to June 2021 on location in L.A., which would give them ample time in post-production before the 2022 release. Peele is also the writer of the project and acting as producer alongside Ian Cooper. Robert Graf set as the executive producer.
