UNITED STATES: Universal Pictures is preparing a Christmas gift for cinephiles, as Jordan Peele’s next film is scheduled to release on next year that too on a festive season.
It is not the first time that Universal Pictures is teaming up with Peele, the production house earlier released Get Out (2017), Us (2019), and Nope (2022).
Now the production banner shared information about the “Untitled Fourth Film Directed by Jordan Peele” on its release calendar. The film is set to hit big screens on December 25, 2024.
