Jordan Peele has revealed the title and release date of his next project, which was originally rumoured in February this year. According to a poster shared to Twitter, the follow-up to 2019’s Us is titled Nope, and described as “a new terror from the mind of Academy Award winner Jordan Peele”.
Plot details are currently being kept firmly under wraps, though the poster does offer a vague hint, showing an ominous storm cloud hanging over a distant town at night, with a string of coloured flags trailing behind it.
It also confirms that the upcoming horror film will see Peele reunite with Daniel Kaluuya, the recent Oscar-winner and star of his iconic directorial debut, 2017’s Get Out. As previously suggested, the actor will star across from Hustlers star Keke Palmer and Minari’s Steven Yeun, who joined the project back in April.
New additions to the film’s cast, meanwhile, come in the form of Euphoria’s Barbie Ferreira and Brandon Perea, of The OA.
According to Peele’s new announcement, Nope will be released exclusively in cinemas, on July 22, 2022.
Jordan Peele’s long-awaited “spiritual sequel” to Candyman, meanwhile, is finally set to premiere on August 27, 2021. Last month, the filmmaker shared a terrifying trailer for the supernatural slasher. Watch here, and take a peek at the poster for Nope below.
