Will there be a sequel to Get Out?
As if horror maestro Jordan Peele doesn’t have enough on his plate, Blumhouse Productions CEO Jason Blum has nixed the idea of a sequel to Peele’s 2017 Academy Award-winning horror smash hit Get Out. Speaking with The Observer, Get Out producer Blum said that as much as he’d be delighted to see a followup from Peele to the social thriller about affluent white people body-snatching African Americans to live forever, that’s up to Peele.
While Blum, back in 2018, did say that Peele was flirting with the idea of a sequel, he has just clarified that it was a case of “wishful thinking.” Blum said,
“I think that was taken out of context. I think what I said and what I would still say is, I would love to make a ‘Get Out’ sequel. But we would only do it if Jordan wanted to do it. And as far as I know, he has no intention of doing that.”
