Jordan Peele will seriously consider developing a Get Out sequel

Jordan Peele Get Out sequel

GET OUT has proven to be one of 2017's biggest success stories. In addition to the enormous box-office success and critical praise, Jordan Peele's directorial debut is also up for some top honours at the 90th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actor. Not bad at all. Peele is obviously quite busy with a mountain of other projects at the moment, but at THR's recent Nominees Night party, Jordan Peele was asked whether a GET OUT sequel was in the cards, and although he wasn't about to commit to anything, he did say that it's something he's going to seriously consider.

I will definitely seriously consider it. I love that universe and I feel like there is more story to tell. I don't know what it is now, but there are some loose ends, if you know the movie, there are some loose ends that feel like they want to be tied up...I'll throw that out there. But look, I would never want to do a sequel that feels like for the sake of a sequel.

Part of me hopes that GET OUT will be left as is, as there's always the possibility that the story could be muddled by an unnecessary and subpar sequel, but Jordan Peele added that if he were to move forward with GET OUT 2, "I would have to have a story which I feel would take it up a notch." It's possible that there are other groups out there using the Coagula procedure in new and more sadistic ways, which could provide the opportunity to open up the world further. What do you folks think? Could a sequel to GET OUT be as successful as the first film?

In addition to another thriller, which he says will be "very different" from GET OUT, Jordan Peele is also developing Lovecraft Country, a one-hour drama which has already been given a straight-to-series order by HBO. Based upon Matt Ruff's novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country follows twenty-five year old Atticus Black as he embarks on a road trip across 1950's Jim Crow America to find his father after he goes missing. Peele will also be teaming up with Spike Lee for BLACK KLANSMAN, a dramatic crime thriller based on the true story of Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer who infiltrated the KKK in the late 1970's and was able to rise through the ranks and collect all sorts of intelligence about their activities. Throw in a revival of The Twilight Zone for CBS and a potential 1970's-set drama series chronicling the pursuit and capture of Nazis who escaped justice followed World War II, and you've got one busy dude.
