Jordan Peele has proven himself adept at making people laugh and if the next phase of his career goes as planned, he’ll be doing the opposite and making us scream and cry instead. Peele had previously revealed plans to write and direct a horror movie for Darko Entertainment and in a recent interview with Playboy he elaborated on the project and his plans for the future:

"I've been spending the first half of my career focusing on comedy but my goal, in all honesty, is to write and direct horror movies. I have one that I'm working on with Darko Entertainment called Get Out – I don’t want to say too much about it, but it is one of the very, very few horror movies that does jump off of racial fears. That to me is a world that hasn't been explored. Specifically, the fears of being a black man today. The fears of being any person who feels like they're a stranger in any environment that is foreign to them. It deals with a protagonist that I don't see in horror movies."

Despite not being funny at all, the project does sound like a very fresh take on horror and could elevate Peele’s status to “Modern Renaissance Man” alongside multi-talents like actor/musician Keanu Reeves
