Jordan Peele: From Comedy To Horror
Although he gained notoriety for his work in comedy—Peele is best known for his Peabody Award-winning sketch series Key & Peele—it was in terror that the author took over the world. 2017’s Run! broke box office records for films with new directors and awarded Peele the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. As a result, he won the science fiction slasher Nós, even more critically acclaimed and an absolute blockbuster and blockbuster.
Recently, the director has assumed that he enjoys working behind the camera much more than he does in front of him and that he might give up acting altogether. “I can watch the movies I direct, seeing myself acting is like a bad kind of masturbation. One you don’t like,” he said in an interview. In addition to directing, Peele produced the remakes of Candyman, directed by Nia DaCosta and premiered on August 27, and The People Under the Stairs, in 1991.
