Jordan Peele’s Get Out was an unexpected social-horror hit that took everyone by surprise in a positive way. Ever since the film was released fans and critics have been desperate to see what he’ll do next. Last Night via Twitter he revealed to the world…US.
Via the director’s own Twitter Feed we learned the ‘new nightmare’ is going to be called the US. It was accompanied by a creepy new poster.
The title or even the poster simply tease and don’t reveal very much. The Poster style is minimal but reminds us of one of those inkblot Rosarch test cards. The actual image looks like two female heads making up a heart. Is it the heart of a monster?

‘New Nightmare‘ could quash any gossip of this being Get Out 2. For a new director, Peele has mastered the art of tease very well. Peele has confirmed the film is definitely a horror and he loves to twist genres. Thriller and action and a nice slice of fun are certainly on the cards.
The poster also has the date 15th March 2019 on it, we assume that’s the targetted release date. Which could mean the principal photography is about to start so casting will be about to be announced.

Variety is reporting potential cast members with Lupita Nyong’o and Elizabeth Moss. The Handmaid’s Tale star Moss apparently in line to be one of the leads. Black Panther’s Winston Duke could also be lined up to play the male lead role. Could Moss and Duke be a couple or polar opposites villain and hero?
US will be the Oscar-winning director’s first film which is part of the Universal Pictures deal.
