He has just been nominated for an Oscar Award in the A24 family drama “Minari”, and Steven Yeun is expected to appear in Jordan Peele’s next film.
Although this premise-even the genre-is kept secret, the cast will also include Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya. Peele is writing and directing the film, which is expected to premiere on July 22, 2022.
Peele also made the movie with Ian Cooper of Monkeypaw Productions. The project is part of a five-year production agreement between the company and Universal Pictures. This film will mark the third collaboration between Peele and Universal Pictures. The studio supported his directorial debut “Going Out”, which was a huge success and won four Oscar nominations (including a victory for the original). Peele is closely followed by the horror thriller “Us”
Sara Scott, senior vice president of production, and Tony Ducret, creative director, will oversee the project on behalf of Universal Pictures.
Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions recently co-supported the HBO series “Lovecraft Country” and Amazon’s “Hunters” with Al Pacino. Next, the company will release a remake of “Candyman” starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Nia DaCosta directed the film based on the script she co-wrote with Peele.
Yeun’s titles include “The Walking Dead”, “Burning” and “Okja”, and will appear in the Netflix comedy “Beef” next. He will star in a TV show with Ali Wong.
Yeun’s agents include CAA, major Los Angeles entertainment companies, Gotham Group and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman.
Deadline Hollywood first reported the news of Yeun’s cast.
