Academy Award nominated director Jordan Peele took 2017 by storm with his directorial debut Get Out.

Peele continues, “One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun, genre of intrigue is my favorite. That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out. That said, I want to make a completely different movie. I want to address something different than race in the next one.”
