With Get Out's Jordan Peele currently working on his next hotly anticipated horror, Us, now comes word on a huge name joining the cast.
As confirmed by the actress herself, Lupita Nyong’o has signed on to headline the picture. Having nabbed an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave, Nyong’o has since gone on to play Maz Kanata in the recent Star Wars movies, not to mention playing Raksha in The Jungle Book and Nakia in Marvel’s Black Panther.
No major details are known about Us just yet, but we do know that the picture will focus on two couples, one black, one white. Nyong’o and Black Panther co-star Winston Duke are lined up to play one couple, while The Handmaid’s Tale’s Elisabeth Moss is up for one half of the other couple. However, both Duke and Moss have yet to officially sign on for the film.
At this stage, Us is set for a March 15th, 2019 release.
