“I love this theory,” Jordan Peele says.

In a great video via Vanity Fair, Jordan Peele, director behind the fantastic Get Out, spends some time in dialogue with various fan theories, observations, and musings culled from the far corners of the internet.

Is the whole thing the elaborate fantasy of a paranoid TSA agent?

Is there an elaborate symbolic nod involving Bach?

And did you notice that Chris picks cotton out of that chair?

Jordan Peele is a delightful and thoughtful presence here, and some of the theories he responds to are genuinely interesting.

Book your trip to that other dimension, the one "not only of sight and sound, but of mind."

Sci-fi anthology series "The Twilight Zone" is coming back.

In November, CBS CEO Leslie Moonves announced the classic show would be revived on CBS All Access, the network's subscription streaming service.

But at the time, CBS wouldn't confirm the rumors that "Get Out" filmmaker Jordan Peele would be involved.

On Wednesday the network confirmed Peele's involvement.

Critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning director Jordan Peele’s next “terror” is officially called Nope, according to a poster the director shared on Thursday. The details of the project remain (delightfully) shrouded in mystery, and you’ll still have a bit longer to wait before you can see it yourself — Nope is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 22nd, 2022.

There’s not a ton to go off of in the poster Peele tweeted, but it does feature an ominous dark cloud with what looks like a kite string trailing out the back of it. Peele’s tease of his last film Us was equally evocative and obtuse, so while there’s probably meaning to be gleaned from a mysterious cloud rolling over a mountain town, it’s also just nice to let the mystery be....

The most effective horror movies offer a balanced mixture of gore, frights, and sly social commentary—and Get Out, a hit with both critics and audiences, does this better than most.

But as director Jordan Peele explains, the movie’s crowd-pleasing ending wasn’t always what he had in mind for his film’s final act.

Appearing on the Another Round podcast earlier this week, Peele was asked about Get Out’s alternate endings.

If you’ve seen the movie, you know that the main character, Chris, manages to escape the racist clutches of his mind-and-body swapping captors after a hard-earned violent rampage and the perfectly-timed appearance of his best friend, Rod (LilRel Howery).

However, Peele confirms that several much bleaker endings were originally considered, including ones in which Chris would be arrested for mass murder or even gunned down on the spot by the local police.

The reason he ultimately decided against going in that direction: timing—and the changing level of awareness of the American public.

CBS has announced that it will soon be the destination to watch a “The Twilight Zone” reboot with Jordan Peele among the executive producers on the series.

CBS announced the news today, saying the reboot will be produced by its CBS Television Studios alongside Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions.

Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films will also be associated with the production.

CBS’s reboot will apparently also be called “The Twilight Zone,” keeping the same name used for the popular series that aired on CBS for five years back in the late 50s and early 60s.

CBS calls its landmark show “the godfather of sci-fi,” and it plans to reimagine the series for a modern audience.

Details on the project are slim at this time, but CBS states that it has tapped Jordan Peele, Simon Kinberg, and Marco Ramirez as executive producers for the show.

Which is why it's no surprise that Jordan Peele will be rebooting the show with CBS All Access.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Oscar winner Jordan Peele is in talks to produce a remake of the 1992 film Candyman, which starred Tony Todd, Virginia Madsen, and was directed by Bernard Rose.

If you don’t knowCandyman, that’s something you should fix soon, especially with Halloween only a few weeks away.

Based on a short story by Clive Barker, it’s a scary, visceral horror film set in and around a high-rise housing project in Chicago.

The title villain is the son of a slave who had his hand severed, replaced with a hook, was killed by bees, and is magically conjured by repeating his name five times in front of a mirror.

While Peele is still only in talks and may end up just producing, this news feels oddly serendipitous.

Horror is having a moment right now, in no small part because of the financial and critical success of Get Out.

You’re entering the vicinity of an area area adjacent to the Superb Owl.

The kind of place where there might be some sports, or some sort of weird advertisements.

It could also be something much better, like Jordan Peele inviting you to follow him into the CBS’s new Twilight Zone.

It remains to be seen whether this newest incarnation of the classic series will be able to hold a candle to the original, but the way this first teaser uses the Super Bowl as a means of making you feel as if things are distinctly wrong and out of place is a promising sign of things to come.

The Twilight Zone (1959-1964) remains the rare bit of classic TV that can hold up today.

SyFy proves this annually with its traditional Twilight Zone New Years' marathon.

So it shouldn't come as a surprise that CBS, which recently produced new series from established franchises like Star Trek and The Big Bang Theory, decided the time for a reboot has finally come.

Even the most reboot cautious among us have reason to be slightly optimistic about the Thursday announcement, however.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS has bestowed the iconic franchise to Monkeypaw Productions, the company founded by Get Out writer/director Jordan Peele.

Like Star Trek: Discovery, the project has reportedly been tapped for the CBS All-Access streaming platform.
