Duke is joining an all-star cast which includes Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, Black Panther actor Winston Duke, The Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss, and Tom Heidecker.

While plot details have been kept from the public, a short plotline on IMDb describes the film as a "social horror-thriller". Peele had earlier spoken about his next project with The Hollywood Reporter: "One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favourite. That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out. That said, I want to make a completely different movie. I want to address something different than race in the next one."

Peele previously directed Get Out which centered on an inter-racial relationship between a black American man and his white partner. The film was a satire on racism and critically lauded. Peele who scripted the film won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
