Fresh off the success of his directorial debut "Get Out," Jordan Peele has inked a two year deal with Universal Pictures. The deal will give Universal the first look at any projects Peele does through his Monkeypaw Productions company. The deal also includes a follow up to his first film "Get Out" and it comes with a budget five times bigger than the original.
“I am thrilled to continue the work we started together on Get Out — pushing the boundaries of storytelling, not only on the next film but with all of Monkeypaw’s future projects,” the 38-year-old writer-director said in a statement.
"Get Out" is to date the most successful debut by a first-time black director with a global box office over $200 million so far.
