Nope Jordan Peele's Next Film Is Very Different From Get Out And Us

Jordan Peele's next film Nope, in which she plays as Jill Haywood, is unlike his previous films Us and Get Out, according to Keke Palmer.

Nope has had a strange marketing campaign that teases many aspects of the picture without revealing what it's about. The most prevalent hypothesis is that it's a cross between a Western and an extraterrestrial invasion picture, however the narrative has only been confirmed to be about an unusual incident in the desert. This event is observed by James (Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya) and Jill Haywood (Keke Palmer), who own and operate a horse ranch just outside of Hollywood. Keith David, Donna Mills, Barbie Ferreira, Michael Wincott, and Oscar contender Steven Yeun round out the ensemble cast.

Palmer confirmed to EW regarding her participation in the film that it would go a completely different approach than Get Out or Us. While the film will still be a social criticism, it will employ an entirely new set of topics and tones. She even declared that Nope "had a lot of '70s tones." Read her entire remark below:

"Nope is nothing like Get Out or Us. It’s a totally different vibe, it's about something different — the themes are totally different, and the tone is totally different. This has a lot of '70s tones, which I think is exciting."

Taking a more '70s style will undoubtedly be an intriguing decision for Peele. His previous work have been much more current, yet the narrative of Get Out clearly pays homage to the 1975 sci-fi horror classic The Stepford Wives (which was based on the 1972 Ira Levin novel of the same name). Before returning to the present day, Us featured a sequence set in the 1980s, complete with a nod to the making of the vampire classic The Lost Boys.

If Peele is developing a film about an extraterrestrial invasion, he couldn't go wrong with using the 1970s as inspiration. Given that the decade produced both Ridley Scott's Alien and Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it's safe to say that the decade laid the groundwork for extraterrestrial cinema. Nope would undoubtedly be in excellent company.
