What is Jordan Peele’s ‘Nope’ about?

‘Nope’ is coming from Jordan Peele. Do we know anything about it?

Director Jordan Peele revealed his next big film is on the way.

Do we know anything about it? Well, nope.

‘Nope’ poster revealed

Peele shared the first power and the new title for the project, which will be titled “Nope” and stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun.

  • The poster shows a giant storm hovering above what looks like a village, which has a vague resemblance to a carnival or fair.

Is ‘Nope’ a ‘Get Out’ sequel?

Per The Guardian, Kaluuya starred in Peele’s major breakout film, “Get Out.” So there’s a path for “Nope” to be a sequel to the “Get Out” since it ended on something of an open ending.

  • “You will remember, of course, that Kaluuya’s character was one of the only figures to survive the events of Get Out. Could Nope be a continuation of his story? Could we learn what happened to him after the unthinking trauma of the Sunken Place? Does he retreat to a mountain village that is subsequently terrorised by a cloud? It’s a long shot, but don’t rule it out,” according to The Guardian.
