Jordan Peele’s New Social Thriller Set for 2019 by Universal

22 May 2017 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After signing Jordan Peele to a first-look deal following the success of his directorial debut, “Get Out,” Universal has dated his next film for March 15, 2019.

Currently untitled, the movie’s plot details are being kept under wraps. Peele will write, direct, and produce the social thriller based on his original idea.

The pic will face stiff competition from Brie Larson’s “Captain Marvel,” which opens the week before, and Millie Bobby Brown’s “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” which launches the following week.

Get Out” opened at the top of the domestic box office in February, and the thriller has since become both a commercial and critical success, grossing almost $230 million worldwide.

HBO Has Ordered A Series From Jordan Peele!

16 May 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Jordan Peele is hot, hot, hot right now! After attaining fame in Comedy Central's popular sketch show, Key and Peele, Jordan Peele and Keegen-Michael Key were catapulted into movies, starting with Keanu. Keanu's success is nothing compared to that of Peele's smash hit Get Out, which he wrote and directed. The film earned Peele's production company, Monkeypaw Productions, a first-look film deal with Universal Pictures. Now it looks like Peele is returning his sights to the land of TV.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that HBO has given Lovecraft Country a straight-to-series order. Peele's Monkeypaw Productions is creating the show with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, based on the 2016 novel Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff. The hour-long series will be written by Misha Green, executive producer on Underground. She will also serve as the showrunner.

Do We Really Need Coming to America 2?

7 May 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 1980s seem to have come back in an odder way than we could have ever imagined. In 2017, we have a President who is a former reality TV star. In the 1980s, we had a President who was a former actor. Today, we have social media running our lives and giving us innumerable ways to compete with each other. In the 1980s, MTV had us under its thumb. It made us compete with one other about being the first to see the new media known as music videos. And now, in 2017, there's talk of Eddie Murphy writing and actually making a sequel to 1988's wildly successful Coming to America, which, like the first movie, will be released by Paramount Pictures.

Today's cinematic landscape is mired in nostalgia. For most of the 1990s and 2000s, we had films that looked back fondly (and not so fondly) at the go-go times of the 1970s. »

‘Get Out’ Opens Hollywood’s Doors for a Promising Director: Here’s Why Jordan Peele Should Be Wary

4 May 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It was only a matter of time before Jordan Peele signed a flashy first-look deal with a major studio. Peele’s directorial debut “Get Out” has taken in $195 million at the worldwide box office on a budget of roughly $5 million, and his deft handling of racial issues within the horror-thriller genre has put him in a class of storytelling all by himself. “Get Out” distributor Universal Pictures now has a two-year overall production deal with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, giving the studio the rights to his untitled social thriller that he will write, direct and produce.

Get Out Director Jordan Peele Selects His Next Project

3 May 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Who would’ve thought that Jordan Peele of Key and Peele fame would have had such an amazingly strong directorial debut with the horror film Get Out. Now, that’s not to say we didn’t expect the film to be good. Given his track record and sensibilities, we expected it to do pretty well. However, the film went on to be the best reviewed film of the year.

Out of 233 reviews, all but one were positive. Of course, this led to a very strong box office performance, and the film ended up taking in nearly $200 million on its miniscule $4.5 million budget. Without a doubt, Peele seems destined for great things, and there were rumors circulating that he may be up to helm the eventual Akira adaptation, but it sounds like those talks amounted to nothing.

According to a press release from Universal Pictures, Peele is working on another “socially-conscious” thriller for his next film. »

Reggie Watts and ‘The New Negroes’ Lead Comedy Central’s Attempts to Find the Next ‘Key & Peele’ and Amy Schumer

18 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Comedy Central’s latest development slate is diverse in more ways than one.

Not only has the cable network put together several new series with performers of color at the center, but the three shows picked up Tuesday by Comedy Central are all very different.

Ordered to series are the stand-up/musical show “The New Negroes,” the comedy game show “Taskmaster” and the scripted comedy “Corporate.” In development are shows from creators including Awkwafina, Neal Brennan, Arturo Castro, Franchesca Ramsey, Noël Wells and Flint Wainess, among others.

“The network when I got here was pretty traditionally targeted toward young white guys, both in terms of who the audience was and who was creating the shows for the audience,” said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman. “We started changing that a few years ago by expanding that into having funny women on the network, with Amy Schumer and Broad City and a lot more since. »

Keegan Michael Key’s Phi Kappa Theta Composite Surfaces

It’s been a very long road for Keegan Michael Key.  He wasn’t really a big name in comedy until the last 5 years or so, but he’s been around since the late 90s.  You might even remember him on the show ER for one episode.   He basically floated around getting bit parts on TV until 2008 when he landed a role on MadTV.   From there he was a regular on Reno 911 and his career kept getting better until 2012’s Key and Peele solidified him as an elite name in the comedy world.

Akira: Get Out Director Jordan Peele Being Courted For Manga Adaptation?

30 March 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We all knew this day would come. Earlier this year, Jordan Peele (of Key and Peele fame) released his directorial debut effort, Get Out. It was a horror flick that managed to rise above its genre by making a social commentary about racism. Critics raved about the film's quality, and right now, the film sits at 99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and only one "rotten" review from Armond White. Audiences also responded greatly to this film, as the flick has received an A- CinemaScore, along with over $150 million at the box office. Given its $4.5 million budget, there is no question that this is a breakout success for Peele and his career.

It was inevitable that he would be courted by studios to take on bigger budget films, and maybe even full franchises. Well, a new report from Jeff Sneider over at The Tracking Board is now reporting that Warner Bros is »

David Crow Mar 27, 2017

Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos joins Boyd Holbrook and Olivia Munn on the set of The Predator...

The amount of 80s nostalgia circling The Predator, a semi-sequel and reboot of the beloved action saga about one ugly freakin’ alien and the humans he hunts, just got a little richer. After all, Shane Black, who had a supporting role in James McTernan’s original Predator (1987), is writing and directing the movie. Now Edward James Olmos too is joining the project.

Olmos, who came to the attention of many genre fans for appearing in Blade Runner (1982), has had a long career as a character actor, appearing in Battlestar Galactica, Miami Vice, and Dexter, among many other projects. He is also expected to reprise his role as the replicant-hunting Gaff in this autumn’s much belated sequel, Blade Runner 2049.

In The Predator, Olmos will be playing what The »

‘Teachers’: Why Six Bold Women Named Katie Aren’t Afraid to Get Ugly for Great Comedy

22 March 2017 2:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you’re wondering what the future of women in comedy might look like, consider Caitlin Barlow’s armpits. “We’re painting my armpit hair on for this episode,” she said to IndieWire. “I grew it out for a week, but it wasn’t dark enough.”

That’s just one example of the sort of creative choice made regularly in the course of making “Teachers,” the bold, profane and hilarious comedy created by sketch comedy group the Katydids and executive produced by Ian Roberts and Jay Martel (“Key and Peele”). Having just wrapped the first half of its second season, the TV Land series features Katydids members Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Kathryn Renee Thomas as an eclectic group of educators who work at an elementary school, doing their best not to warp young minds with their outrageous behavior.

Dave Chappelle: Key & Peele ‘Hurt My Feelings’ by Not Giving Me Credit for Their Show

20 March 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this story originally appeared on EW.com.

Dave Chappelle says that while he’s a “fan” of erstwhile sketch comedy show Key & Peele, a lack of credit he received for its success has hurt his feelings.

Speaking to Gayle King during an interview on CBS This Morning to coincide with the release of Chappelle’s new Netflix comedy specials, Chappelle discussed the tension he feels with the Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key series, which aired on Comedy Central years after Chappelle’s Chappelle’s Show went off the air.

TV Review: Two Dave Chappelle Netflix Comedy Specials, ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas’ and ‘The Age of Spin’

17 March 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a charged metaphor to use at the moment, but some standup comics function as border patrol agents. They may not stand in airports checking the papers of arriving travelers, but many of the best ones — and Dave Chappelle undoubtedly belongs in that elite group — are obsessed with moral positions and cultural territories, who gets to occupy them, and why. 

Many of the most thoughtful and incendiary comics explore the ways in which power dynamics worked in the past, as well as the kinds of words, actions and attitudes are acceptable in the present. How are flawed human beings, all of whom carry their own personal baggage along with the ingrained attitudes of the cultures they were raised in, supposed to negotiate evolving attitudes and new social protocols while holding on to their identities and at least part of their dignity? In two new standup specials that arrive Tuesday on Netflix, Chappelle »

Family Matters arrived on television in the fall of 1989 as a blue collar alternative to The Cosby Show. It focused on a middle-class African American family living in Chicago where patriarch Carl Winslow worked as a police officer and his wife Harriet was an elevator operator at a newspaper. Their tiny home housed three children, a grandmother, a widowed aunt and her young son. Early plots involved the oldest son dealing with a bad report card, Harriet losing her job and Carl restoring an old police car. A lesson was »
