Duke Nicholson, grandson of actor Jack Nicholson, has joined the cast of Jordan Peele’s Us.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, though the film is said to be another thriller from the mind of Jordan Peele. He joins a cast that already includes Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Anna Diop.
The movie is the first project under Peele’s first-look deal with Universal, which he signed with his Monkeypaw Productions last spring. Get Out opened No. 1 at the domestic box office last year on its way to grossing $255.5 million worldwide. It scored glowing reviews and an Oscar best picture nomination, with Peele winning the best original screenplay Academy Award for the film.
Peele is writing and directing the film, in addition to producing it for Monkeypaw alongside Sean McKittrick and Jason Blum. Monkeypaw’s Ian Cooper is also producing Us.
Production is currently underway. Peele is joined by a creative team that includes cinematographer Mike Gioulakis, production designer Ruth De Jong, editor Nicholas Monsour, costume designer Kym Barrett, and composer Michael Abels. Daniel Lupi will executive produce the movie.
Us will be released in theaters on March 15, 2019. Do you think Duke Nicholson has the chops? Let us know down below!
