Described as an “expansive horror epic,” Nope will be led by Oscar-winner Daniel Kaluuya, who is officially reuniting with Peele following the successful release of 2017’s Get Out. Joining him are Keke Palmer (Hustle), and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun (Minari) as they portray residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery.

Additional cast includes Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott, Wrenn Schmidt, Keith David, Donna Mills, Barbie Ferreira, Devon Graye, Eddie Jemison, Oz Perkins, Terry Notary, Andrew Patrick Ralston, and Jennifer Lafleur.

Further details about the project’s plot and characters are still being kept under wraps, but like Peele’s first two directorial features, it is expected to be a psychological horror-thriller laced with socially conscious themes in regards to race and society.

The film is written and directed by Jordan Peele, who previously earned an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his directorial feature debut Get Out. Before the upcoming film, he had also directed 2019’s Us, starring Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke.

Nope is a production by Monkeypaw Productions and Universal Pictures, with Peele and Ian Cooper attached as producers.
