Jordan Peele could be on his way to an Oscar win, with physiological thriller Get Out. The film earned over $250 million dollars at the box office and now Peele is considering a follow-up.
During The Hollywood Reporters’ sixth annual Nominees Night on Monday, Jordan Peele said he’s thinking about a sequel. “I can tell you I will definitely, seriously consider it. I love that universe and I feel like there is more story to tell. I don’t know what it is now, but there are some loose ends,” he said.

Get Out finally got some respect with the film being nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor, And Best Director.
Back in October Peele discussed some of the themes with his first blockbuster film.
“Being an African American, I have never seen my perspective in a horror film,” said Peele. “[Get Out] has my worst fears realized as a black man in this country — from the evil white girl who’s been lying to you to the lacrosse stick — those things are foreign to me.”
“Black people would recognize that fear — it’s part of the black identity and the horror America,” he said. “There are things we are cognizant of because we have to be. For white audiences, they see how it is to be a black man in a suburban neighborhood at night.”
