During The Hollywood Reporters’ sixth annual Nominees Night on Monday, Peele spoke about the possibility of creating a sequel to his feature film directorial debut.
“I can tell you I will definitely, seriously consider it. I love that universe and I feel like there is more story to tell. I don’t know what it is now, but there are some loose ends,” Peele said.

Peele also recently revealed the role offering that made him retire from being an actor during the Directors Guild of America awards ceremony.
“I was offered the role of Poop — this is true,” Peele said. “I would not make this up. I was offered the role of Poop; I was like, ‘That’s fu**ed up.’ I told my manager, ‘That’s fu**ed up, let me sleep on it.’ I came back the next day, I said, ‘Well, what are they offering?’ And they said, ‘Oh, well they’ve already given it to Sir Patrick Stewart.’ I was like, ‘F**k this.’ That’s a true story.”
Get Out has received four Oscar nominations for Best Director, Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actor for Daniel Kaluuya. Peele is now the fifth black director to ever be nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science for the Best Director award. The first black director to ever receive the nomination was John Singleton for Boyz n the Hood. After Singleton there was Lee Daniels for Precious (2009), Steve McQueen for 12 Years a Slave (2013), and Barry Jenkins for Moonlight (2017).
