In a recent interview with Business Insider, newly minted director Jordan Peele lets a secret out the bag. He's nowhere near done behind the lens, and he's just begun to get comfortable in the director's seat. Plus, with the immense success of Get Out, Hollywood is sure to be in full support of whatever he decides to do next. Coincidentally, those happen to be horror films that explore the social condition much like his first film does.
Get Out explores racism and it's various symbolisms as a monstrosity, a context that better describes it than anything else could. Racism is literally the big bad boogie man under the bed in this psychological thriller. If you haven't seen it by now, you're really tripping at this point. After all, not many movies ever get past 50% on Rotten Tomatoes and Get Out came out of the gate at 100%. Literally, a perfect score.
Peele stated, "I have four other social thrillers that I want to unveil in the next decade…The best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings and what we are capable of especially when we get together. I've been working on these premises about these different social demons, these innately human monsters that are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact, and each one of my movies is going to be about a different one of these social demons."
And, honestly, who can argue with him in Trump's America? Jordan Peele has completely shocked the entire film industry, so you can bet any amount of money that at least two of the films he talked about in that interview will be made within the next three to four years. And if they're anything like the genesis of his career as a big screenwriter and director, he can come collect all of our coins.
