Jordan Peele is looking to keep his run in films going by now signing a deal with Universal pictures. The deal like we’ve seen in other situations is a first-look production deal. We don’t blame Universal for going this route. Peele broke all type of records with his film Get Out and this new deal proves we can expect a lot more films like this from Peele.
It looks like Jordan Peele is going to get a chance to make his series of horror movies about “social demons,” as Deadline is reporting that the Get Out director and his Monkeypaw Productions label have signed a first-look production deal with Universal Pictures. Basically, that means Universal is already on board for Peele’s next film, as well as “several micro-budgeted projects” that he’s producing alongside Jason Blum. We don’t know much about the film or the smaller projects, but Deadline says Peele’s goal in starting Monkeypaw was to “tell stories in all genres and to give platforms to untapped voices in those mediums,” so they won’t necessarily all be horror movies.
