2017 has been nothing short of amazing for Jordan Peele. Earlier in the year, his horror smash hit Get Out became the first debut feature written and directed by an African American to earn over USD 175 million at the box office. Then, a few months later, he announced that he is working on intriguing TV series entitled The Hunt which will explore the life of a band of Nazi hunters.
In addition, he is involved in a number of awesome-sounding projects, including Spike Lee’s Black Klansman, and has also shared that Get Out is only the first installment in a planned series of movies exploring different “social demons.”
And if all of this weren’t impressive enough on its own, last week Peele announced that he will be producing CBS’ reboot of the iconic Twilight Zone series, which originally ran between 1959 and 1964, and has captivated several generations of TV audiences since.
“Too many times this year it’s felt like we were living in a twilight zone, and I can’t think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences,” Peele explained in a statement.
We couldn’t agree more, and we are eagerly awaiting to see his take on Rod Serling’s classic horror anthology!
