A new Jordan Peele project has been announced, and three hot stars of the moment are circling around it.
Previously known as the Untitled Jordan Peele project at Universal from Blumhouse and Peele’s Monkeypaw, Peele’s new “original and provocative thriller” has been given a name, Us, and has been given a release date of March 15, 2019.
Shortly after the Universal announcement, multiple trade publications reported that Black Panther stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, as well as The Handmaid’s Tale leading lady Elisabeth Moss were in talks to star.
This is yet another project lined up for Nyong’o, who has several films on her to-do list including The Woman King with Viola Davis. For Duke, the breakout star of Black Panther, Us is the first of many post-Black Panther projects he’s sure to net.
Us will be written and directed by Peele.
