Directed by Jordan Peele, Us is a chilling story that follows the premise that we all have an exact double condemned to spend his life in the dark. The film premiered earlier this year and had Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as the protagonist. Although Us has an open ending, Nyong’o said after the movie’s release that he didn’t want to record a sequel. However, it seems that the actress is gradually changing her mind.
Nyong’o spoke in an interview with Indiewire about the possibility of making the second part of Us. At first, the interpreter was as firm in her refusal as months ago. However, after considering his options with a little calmer, he said there would be a possibility that it would happen.
“Well, never say never, because in how much you say no, that is exactly what will happen. So maybe I’ll say “Yes, absolutely,” just so karma doesn’t come back to bite my ass. I really love the work we created together (Jordan Peele and me). Obviously I am in love with your mind and the ideas that come out of it. In this case, I include the role he gave me”.
Additionally, Nyong’o explained that part of his dislike for a sequel is that he likes Us to have an open end. At the same time, if Jordan Peele asked him to come back for a new installment, he would definitely consider it.
Regarding the karma part, the actress confessed that, since she promised not to wear Red’s red overalls anymore, she has used it again twice.
In Universal Studios Horror Nights, Lupita re-entered her Red character to terrorize clueless tourists who entered a terror house. Apparently, this attraction had a section dedicated to the film by Jordan Peele, so his participation perfectly embossed with other heartless monsters attacking people with scissors and red coveralls.
For his part, Jordan Peele is much more willing to revisit the universe of Us to make a new film, although not exactly a sequel. “Sure! It is a fun (universe). There are many things that happen in it. It’s Us-verse and I like that.
Us, with Lupita Nyong’o, is currently available on Blu-Ray, DVD and digital version.
