Peele’s debut, “Get Out,” became a huge box office and social phenomenon. As it was one of the most commented and praised movies of this year and also grossing $229.6 million worldwide on a production budget of only $4.5 million. Not bad at all for his first take on a thriller.
Hints of the plot and more thrillers

He also added “It will not be in a similar vein [to Get Out], it will be a very different movie. It’ll be a very different project. Where it will overlap is the fact that it will be a thriller and have what I think is a real social message. And of course, I love the Easter egg hunt. So there’ll be similarities. But if you’re looking for ‘Get Out 2’, this will be a very, very different movie”. Despite that, the idea of a “Get Out 2” is still a possibility according to Peele and producer Jason Blum.
The new film could be part of four more “social thrillers”. As Peele thinks the scariest monsters of all are humans. Something he wants to keep exploring, as he did perfectly in “Get Out”.“The best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings and what we are capable of especially when we get together. I’ve been working on these premises about these different social demons, these innately human monsters that are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact, and each one of my movies is going to be a different one of these social demons”.
