What does Jordan Peele have in store for us this time?
Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) and his production company Monkeypaw Productions are officially prepping for their first film venture with Universal Pictures. Just about a year ago, Jordan Peele signed a "Five-year exclusive production partnership" with Jordan set to direct and write two of the movies as part of the deal. It appears one of those movies is preparing for production!
An article published by The Hollywood Reporter today includes "a Peele-directed movie for Universal in a rundown of movies that have been selected to receive tax credits to film in California. The film is currently still untitled at this time, and it must of course be noted that all of Hollywood is very much still at a bit of a standstill due to the ongoing pandemic."
California film commission executive director Colleen Bell made a statement shared by THR, “Production activity is ramping back up in California amid COVID-19 with safety remaining a top priority, and Program 3.0 is attracting the kind of big budget films that will generate a considerable amount of jobs and in-state spending.”
