Jordan Peele has found the star of his upcoming horror film. Deadline reports that Girls’ Allison Williams has officially signed on to star in Peele’s in-the-works movie Get Out. While not much is known about the plot of the film, it will follow “a young African American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate,” and Peele dropped a few hints last year:
“I’ve been spending the first half of my career focusing on comedy but my goal, in all honesty, is to write and direct horror movies. I have one that I’m working on with Darko Entertainment called Get Out – I don’t want to say too much about it, but it is one of the very, very few horror movies that does jump off of racial fears. That to me is a world that hasn’t been explored. Specifically, the fears of being a black man today. The fears of being any person who feels like they’re a stranger in any environment that is foreign to them. It deals with a protagonist that I don’t see in horror movies.”
Get Out will make William’s feature film debut.
