The Top Story
Fresh off an Oscar nomination for his critically acclaimed role in A24’s family drama Minari, Steven Yeun is being eyed to star in Jordan Peele’s next film.
Though the premise — even the genre — is being kept under wraps, the cast is also set to include Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya. Peele is writing and directing the movie, which is expected to debut on July 22, 2022.
Peele is also producing the film alongside Ian Cooper of Monkeypaw Productions. The project falls under the company’s five-year output deal with Universal. The film will mark Peele’s third collaboration with Universal. The studio backed his directorial debut, Get Out, which became a commercial smash and landed four Oscar nominations (including one win, for original screenplay).
Peele followed that up with Us, a terrifying thriller starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke. Collectively, his films have generated more than $500 million at the global box office.
