Jordan Peele says his next thriller will be "very different" from Get Out

Jordan Peele’s GET OUT is still one of the most talked about movies of the year, which is a monumental achievement considering the move hit theaters four and half months ago, practically an eternity on movie years. Like with every freshman director of a smash hit, people are wondering what Peele is gonna do next. In an age where Disney can offer top jobs on Marvel and STAR WARS projects, Peele is steadfast in his plans to take it nice and slow with a new, modestly-budgeted thriller

During a joint interview alongside Blumhouse’s Jason Blum and Universal’s Donna Langley with THR, Peele was asked about his newest movie (planned for 2019), and though people will indeed be comparing it to GET OUT he says don’t expect any sort of spiritual (or literal) sequel:

I'll tell you this, it's going to be a very different movie than Get Out. Don't expect a sequel.

Earlier this year Peele was linked with the big-budget, live-action version of AKIRA, but ultimately came out saying he would not take on the project. When asked if he would ever consider taking on a blockbuster event film in the near future, Peele stood by his plan to stay in the realm of smaller features…for now:

The most important thing for me is maintaining as much of the virtues of the process of Get Out as possible. My goal and plan is to rise in budget slowly. It doesn’t make any sense for me to jump to an enormous budget when it changes the process entirely. I pinch myself and realize how lucky I am to be able to have created something. And if i can do that again, isn’t that the best?

Peele demonstrated a lot of skill on GET OUT, but he seems to understand he can’t bite off more than he can chew just because he has one hit movie under his belt. Not many young directors would elect to do smaller movies when they’re being offered tentpole pictures, and Peele is making the right call. I want to see his more personal material, and then if he feels ready bring that style and confidence to, say, a Marvel movie. Frankly, I'd like to see him do a Marvel movie with only $5 million. It can be done!

GET OUT is on Blu-ray and digital now.
