Jordan Peele‘s weekend trip thriller with a topical twist — “Get Out” — will welcome audiences this winter.
The film hits theaters Feb. 24, and was written and directed by one half of the team behind “Keanu” and Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele.”
Interracial couple Rose (Allison Williams) and Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) reach a meet-the-parents stage in their relationship, leaving their metropolis for a country gathering hosted by mom (Catherine Keener) and dad (Bradley Whitford).
Chris expects chatter about their respective backgrounds and skin colors — not a series of disturbing social interactions and a revelation that quite a few young black man seem to disappear in the area.
“Get Out” was produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum and Sean McKittrick (“Donnie Darko”), Peele and Edward H. Hamm Jr. The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (“X-Men”), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (“The Carmichael Show”), Betty Gabriel (“The Purge: Election Year”), Marcus Henderson (“Pete’s Dragon”) and Keith Stanfield (“Straight Outta Compton”).
Apart from “Keanu” and “Key and Peele,” Peele’s credits include “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” “Life in Pieces,” “The Muppets” and “Storks.” His upcoming projects include “Captain Underpants” and “Abruptio.”
The Feb. 24 date was originally held by the “Untitled Blumhouse Productions Project.”
Peele is represented by CAA and Principato-Young Entertainment.
