Jordan Peele Might Make a 'Get Out' Sequel
"I will definitely seriously consider it"
Published Feb 06, 2018Jordan Peele gained plenty of well-deserved attention for his directorial debut Get Out last year — and he's not opposed to trying to recapture the magic.
At The Hollywood Reporter's "Nominees Night" last night (February 5), the comedian-turned-director revealed that he's open to the idea of making a sequel.
"I will definitely seriously consider it," he said in a red carpet interview.
"I love that universe and I feel like there is more story to tell," Peele continued. "I don't know what it is now but there are some loose ends... that feel like they want to be tied up."
Despite Peele's enthusiasm to re-enter the world created in Get Out, he made a point to say that he wouldn't want to make a sequel just "for the sake of a sequel."
"I would have to have a story that would take it up a notch," he added.
If that follow-up to Get Out does come to be, fans probably shouldn't expect it any time too soon, though. Peele spent eight years writing the original, and estimated that the entire filmmaking process totalled about 10 years.
