It has been almost three years since the release of Jordan Peele’s Us, and moviegoers have been anxiously awaiting his next film ever since. Fortunately, his latest scary vision, Nois finally prepared to be released this summer and beyond that crazy first trailer, the excitement goes up. The film features an impressive cast, which includes Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun, but it was particularly surprising that Peele brought back Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya for this film. Now, the actor who became a director has shared some knowledge about why we wanted to work with Kaluuya again.
There is no doubt that Daniel Kaluuya is one of the most talented stars in Hollywood these days. In recent years, he has participated in notable films such as Black panther, Queen & Slim and Judas and the Black Messiah, for which he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. So superficially, the British actor is a very credible name, but Jordan Peel wants him much more than his professional position. While talking to me EmpirePeele explained that it’s Kaluuya’s presence that makes him perfect:
In Get out, the Oscar winner played the role of Chris Washington, an up-and-coming black photographer accompanying his girlfriend to her parents’s house. The visit begins with a somewhat awkward, but relatively normal beginning, before the young man reveals the awful secrets of the family. Although the film becomes (appropriately) fantastic at times, Chris remains a close-knit character throughout, which is really due to the efforts of the actor who plays him. (And The Oscar-winning screenplay by Jordan Peelof course.)
It is rather fair to assume that the actor and the director followed a similar approach in creating No role. This latest film shows Daniel Kaluuya playing the stoic James Haywood, who co-owns a ranch in a secluded city. Haywood looks just as confused as everyone else when a giant cloud hovers over his community. However, based on the few shots we have seen, he is also one of the most cerebral characters in the story. This certainly becomes clear when he asks an ominous question: “What is a bad miracle?”
Jordan Peel seems more than ready to play with our emotions in his upcoming horror film and I look forward to seeing what the actors will bring to the process. We will see how things turn out for Daniel Kaluuya’s Jim and if the role can win the actor another Oscar like his first outing with Peele.
