Winston Duke And Lupita Nyong’o In New Jordan Peele Movie Titled ‘Us’

Hollywood, Hollywood News
Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o and Elisabeth Moss are in various stages of talks to star in Jordan Peele’s latest movie project, the newly titled Us, for Universal Pictures.

The project is Peele’s first feature since Get Out, the little horror movie that became a pop culture phenomenon and Oscar-winner.

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

Uni has already dated the movie for March 15, 2019.

Details are being kept deep in suburbia but it is said to center on two couples, one white, one black. If deals make, Duke and Nyong’o would play one couple. Moss would play part of the other couple.

Nyong’o, who won an Oscar for her work on Twelve Years a Slave, was last seen in Marvel’s Black Panther. She is set to star opposite Viola Davis in TriStar’s The Woman King and is attached to star in the feature adaptation of Trevor Noah’s best-selling humor biography.

Duke appeared on a handful of television shows such as Person of Interest and Modern Family before landing the role of M’Baku in Panther. The character, both fierce and funny, was one of the breakout from the movie that grossed $1.3 billion. He also appeared in Avenger: Infinity War.
