As is standard, all is kept secret on this production.

“I do feel like my next project is clear to me,” Peele told Conan O’Brien on the latter’s podcast in January, “and I’m psyched that I have another film that could be my favorite movie if I make it right.”

Peele’s three genre films — Get Out, Us and Nope — have collectively grossed $683 million at the worldwide box office.

His socially conscious horror movie Get Out was released in 2017, blasting out of a cannon at the Sundance Film Festival, and went on to win an original screenplay Oscar for Peele, as well as an overall four Oscar noms including Best Picture, Director and Lead Actor for Daniel Kaluuya.

Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions has a first-look deal through Universal. One of its next titles is Justin Tipping’s Him, which will open on \September 19, 2025. Him comes from the Black List screenplay by Zack Akers & Skip Bronkie (creators of the sci-fi crime series Limetown) and follows a promising young football player who is invited to train at the isolated compound of a dynasty team’s aging QB1. Marlon Wayans stars as the legendary quarterback, and former college athlete Tyriq Withers (The GameTell Me Lies) plays his protégé. Pic also stars Julia Fox (Uncut GemsNo Sudden Move), Tim Heidecker (First Time Female Director, Us), comedian Jim Jefferies (The Jim Jefferies Show), and hip hop phenoms Guapdad 4000 and Grammy nominee Tierra Whack, both in their feature film debuts.
