Expect to see it in theatres very soon.

Academy Award winning screenwriter and director Jordan Peele has announced a follow up to his 2017 hit Get Out. The director shared an image for his upcoming film "Us", which is set to hit theatres March 2019.

Last year, Peele signed a first-look deal with Universal Pictures after the massive success of his first film Get Out. In initial reports, the then-untitled 2019 project was billed as a "social thriller ".

Variety reports that Lupita Nyong'o (Black Panther, 12 Years A Slave), Elisabeth Moss (Handmaid's Tale), and Duke Winston (Black Panther) are all in talks to star in the upcoming film. The official cast has not been confirmed by Peele or Universal Pictures.

Just last week, Peele joked on Twitter about Kanye West giving him inspiration to write Get Out 2 after a series of tweets from the rapper.

Fans are undoubtedly excited for Us to hit theatres.

"I need a trailer. Now!" wrote one Twitter user.

The film's full plot and synopsis have not yet been released, however Universal called it “another original and provocative thriller”. There's no doubt this is already one of 2019's most anticipated movies.
