Last week, it was announced that Get Out will be gunning for a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Comedy/Musical category, swiftly raising more than a few eyebrows. Director Jordan Peele himself seemed to take it pretty much in stride once the initial surprise had passed.
If there's one thing you can say about Peele, it's that he's tackled Hollywood on his own terms, thinking outside the box (and, in the case of Get Out, outside conventional ideas of the horror genre) to do doing things his way and not the "Hollywood" way.
Case in point: Peele recently spoke to Deadline and had this to say about a potential sequel to the zeitgeist-tapping film.
“I haven’t decided anything yet and I am allowing the creative part to bubble up, and not force it,” he says. “I know if a follow-up is meant to happen, it will. I’m open to figuring out what it is. But I also don’t want to let down the original and its fans. I simply would not do something like that for the cash.”
It may be a while before he even gets the chance to consider it. Peele is not only working on developing on a new film for Universal that starts production next year, he's also filming Evan Marlowe's Abruptio, producing Spike Lee's Black Klansman, and writing a couple of TV projects. In other words, he's busy telling all sorts of new stories.
Whatever he decides to do, we're guessing Jordan Peele will continue to surprise us.
