Jordan Peele’s recent sci-fi thriller “No” has received a lot of applause since it was released in theaters. Now Peel has just reported that the story of the Universal movie may not be over yet.
In a recent interview with The New York Times, Peel mentioned the fact that Universal’s IMDB movie page listed the character as “Nobody.” It is said that this character was played by actor Michael Bush, who actually appeared in the trailer of the film. This has sparked many theories among fans about the significance of Nobody in the Nope universe and about the future of the film franchise.
“The story of this character has yet to be told, I can tell you that,” Peele hinted in reference to “Nobody.” He further added: “This is another disappointing way of saying: I’m glad people are paying attention to me. I really think they will get more answers to some of these things in the future. We’re not going to tell all these stories.” This statement led many to think that Peel was hinting at the possibility of continuing the “No”. Brandon Perea, who starred in “No” alongside Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer, joined the teasing chances of a sequel by sharing Peel’s statements on Twitter with eye emojis, which made fans even more speculate about the future of “No.”
Since Peel made it clear that the story Knope presented to the audience is by no means finished, this means that a sequel could definitely appear in the near or distant future. The possibility of a potential sequel has caused huge excitement among Peel’s ever-growing fan base, who have become extremely interested in the director’s work since the release of his blockbuster “Away.” The Oscar-winning film “Away” managed to counter the theme of racial prejudice by incorporating the horror genre and frightening cinematography to make the story even more intriguing.
Now that there’s potential for a sequel to “No,” Peel fans will continue to see these stories come to life on the big screen. Although there is no concrete confirmation, as events begin to gain momentum, Peel will definitely confirm or deny whether he is going to shoot a sequel to the film. Given the critical success and box office “No”, the sequel has a very high chance of being just as successful and may even be more profitable than its predecessor.
Nope is now available on digital platforms.
