Peele surprised fans
on Thursday by tweeting the poster for his next thriller, titled "Nope," starring Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, and Daniel Kaluuya — who famously played Chris Washington
in "Get Out."
The writer/producer/director, whose screenplay for "Get Out" won an Oscar in 2018, didn't reveal much about the new project in his tweet, but he did include a cloud emoji, which appears to be a reference to the poster, which depicts a string of flags emerging from clouds in a dark sky.
