Lupita Nyong’o Signs On For Jordan Peele’s Horror Film ‘Us’



One of last week’s big news stories was that Jordan Peele is following up Get Out with Us, another original horror film set for release on March 15, 2019. Along with the news came the first piece of poster art, as well as word that Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther) was in negotiations to lead the cast. Today, Nyong’o has confirmed her role.

Slightly modified art now includes her name.

If all deals go through, Winston Duke (Black Panther) and Lupita Nyong’o would play one couple, while Elisabeth Moss would play half of the other couple.

At this time, Duke and Moss’ involvement is not yet 100% set in stone.

Peele is once again directing from his own script. He is also producing via his Monkeypaw Productions alongside Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum. Also producing is Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper.
