Nope is the new film from Jordan Peele, and it’s going to be with us in the summer of 2022: more details here.
Jordan Peele is a busy man, and one who clearly oozes creativity. As a producer he’s also used his influence since the incredible success of his directorial debut, 2017’s Get Out, to help other filmmakers get their movies made, including Spike Lee’s BlacKKKlansman and Nia DaCosta’s upcoming Candyman reimagining. Since Peele’s last film, 2019’s Us, released to further acclaim, we’ve been waiting for his next project to be announced. And despite plot details being kept tightly under wraps, a few key details have been announced.
The film, titled Nope, will be distributed by Universal, as with Peele’s last two pictures. The cast includes Daniel Kaluuya, who worked with Peele on Get Out, and has gone on to do all kinds of terrific work since, including the excellent Queen & Slim. And he won an Oscar too.
Keke Palmer, Stephen Yeun and Michael Wincott will also feature. Although plot details haven’t been released, even in the form a single logline, there is a poster, which you can see below, showing a strange, dark cloud hovering over a rural town.
Perhaps most exciting of all is the planned release date, 22nd July 2022, is just a year away, which means we won’t have to wait that long to see what it’s all about. With some sequences reportedly shot in IMAX, it should be a feast for the eyes too. More as we hear it.
