After taking viewers into the Sunken Place in Get Out, Jordan Peele will explore another set of multi-layered relationships in his next movie, Us, which is further revealed in new photos and official plot details from Entertainment Weekly.

Written and directed by Peele, Us stars Lupita Nyong’o, Elisabeth Moss, Winston Duke, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tim Heidecker, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Madison Curry, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, and Noelle Sheldon.

While many of the plot details for Us have been kept under wraps thus far, EW reveals some key info on the upcoming film:

"The story is set in the present day and follows Adelaide and Gabe Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke) as they take their kids to Adelaide’s old childhood beachside home in Northern California for the summer. After a day at the beach with the Tyler family (which includes Elisabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker), Adelaide — who’s haunted by a lingering trauma from her past — becomes increasingly more paranoid that something bad will happen to her family. As night falls, the Wilsons see four figures holding hands and standing silently at the bottom of their driveway…"

Speaking with EW, Peele had some very intriguing things to say about his next movie:

“For my second feature, I wanted to create a monster mythology. I wanted to do something that was more firmly in the horror genre but still held on to my love of movies that are twisted but fun.”

According to EW, Peele gave Nyong’o the following movies to watch to prepare for filming Us:

  • Dead Again
  • The Shining
  • The Babadook
  • It Follows
  • A Tale of Two Sisters
  • The Birds
  • Funny Games
  • Martyrs
  • Let the Right One In
  • The Sixth Sense

Us is scheduled to be released in theaters a mere few months from now on March 15th, 2019 via Universal Pictures, so we could see a trailer for the film soon. We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements for Peele's next movie, and in the meantime, you can check out the new photos below from EW, as well as the previously released poster.
