Winston Duke & Lupita Nyong'o In Talks To Join Jordan Peele's Upcoming Film, 'Us'

With the massive success of Marvel's Black Panther, the number of roles Lupita Nyong'o has been offered in the past couple months has skyrocketed. Well, it looks like that good fortune is about to extend to another one of the film's standouts: Winston Duke

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nyong'o, Duke and Elisabeth Moss (Emmy-winning star of The Handmaid's Tale) are currently in talks to join Us — Jordan Peele's follow-up to his Oscar-winning horror hit, Get Out.

Dubbed "a new nightmare", details about Us are still pretty sparse, but the film will reportedly center around a white and black couple. If they are all cast, Nyong'o and Duke will play one couple, while Moss will play one half of the other couple. 

Like with Get Out, Peele will be directing Up from an original script he penned. With the success of Get Out, which not only became a pop culture phenom but made Peele the first black writer to win an 'Original Screenplay' Oscar, Up is already our most anticipated 2019 film.

Us is currently set to hit theatres in March 2019.
