Jordan Peele's horror film 'Get Out' gains Blumhouse as a producing partner

22 September 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I can't wait to see what a Jordan Peele horror film looks like. While I am saddened by the end of "Key & Peele," I also think it's important that both Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key are able to follow their particular muses. Watching their work carefully, I think Key is the more powerful comic presence, relentlessly funny, but Peele is the guy whose character work gets under my skin. He loves the grotesque, and he's played many of them over the various seasons of the show. It does not remotely surprise me to hear that horror is something he considers an essential part of his creative voice. There was news about this back in January, and at that point, Darko Entertainment was working with Peele to develop the film. There weren't many other details. He just said that he was going to be working on a horror film called »

‘Key & Peele’ Star Jordan Peele to Write, Direct Blumhouse and QC Horror Film ‘Get Out’

21 September 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jordan Peele will write and direct the horror thriller “Get Out” for Blumhouse Productions.

Blumhouse and QC Entertainment are producing the project.

The film follows a young African American man who visits his Caucasian girlfriend’s family estate.

“People know me for my work in comedy, but now I’ll get to focus on my passion for writing and directing horror films. Like comedy, horror has an ability to provoke thought and further the conversation on real social issues in a very powerful way,” Peele said. “‘Get Out’ takes on the task of exploring race in America, something that hasn’t really been done within the genre since ‘Night of the Living Dead’ 47 years ago. It’s long overdue.”

Known more for his comedic talents, the multi-hyphenate, who was nominated for an Emmy for his Comedy Central comedy sketch show “Key & Peele,” has tried his hands at darker material in the past, »
