The Academy Award-winning screenwriter has set the release date for his next horror feature, Us, which will hit theaters in March 2019. Peele shared the film's first poster, an ominous shot of two painted faces staring away from each other on a white background, on Twitter on Tuesday.
According toThe Hollywood Reporter, the film is said to center on two couples, one white and one black. Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong'o are reportedly in talks to star as one couple, while Elisabeth Moss is circling a role as part of the other couple.
"I almost never became a director because there’s such a shortage of role models,” he confessed, adding that through the challenge of shooting Get Out and the “grueling” campaign process, one image stuck with him. “When the nominations for this came together, I had this amazing feeling of looking at the 12-year-old who had this burning in my guts for this type of validation, and I instantly realized that an award like this is much bigger than me.”
