"Us" is bound to be a successful follow-up to "Get Out."
Jordan Peele's directorial debut for Get Out was well received by fans and critics everywhere landing the film an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Since then, Jordan has remained very quiet and word on the street is that he's working on his next big hit titled Us and Screenrant has got word on what the film is all about.
The publications details who will be starring in the film, naming Winston Duke and Lupita N'yong'o (Black Pather), Elisabeth Moss, Anna Diop, and Kara Hayward. The synopsis details a family getaway that goes badly when uninvited guests make an appearance. Lupita and Winston play a married couple who take their kids and family friends to their beach house, but all hell breaks loose with certain people show up.
We're not so sure when the flick will arrive, but we do know that Jordan is also working on a "spiritual sequel" to Candyman. "The original was a landmark film for black representation in the horror genre," Jordan said. "Alongside Night of the Living Dead, Candyman was a major inspiration for me as a filmmaker — and to have a bold new talent like Nia at the helm of this project is truly exciting. We are honored to bring the next chapter in the ‘Candyman’ canon to life and eager to provide new audiences with an entry point to Clive Barker’s legend."
