Who would have thought a race-baiting film would become arguably the best movie of the year.
Black comedian and filmmaker Jordan Peele understands the concept of “do more with less.” On Aug. 3, The Wrap reported that Get Out has become the most lucrative film of 2017.

Furthermore, the social thriller catapulted Peele’s career into A-list territory in Hollywood. Now almost every major film production company in Hollywood wants to work with the 38-year-old filmmaker.
According to The Boombox, Universal Pictures and Peele are working on a horror movie, and it will be released on March 15, 2019. Also, Peele will write upcoming HBO Jim Crow series.
