It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. This time, we are learning more about Jordan Peele's future projects.

After winning the Oscar and taking the box office by storm with Get Out and Us, Jordan Peele's company, Monkeypaw has now set their sights on finding new voices and producing some new takes on some classics like Candyman. And today, we found out that Universal and Peele are coming together on a People Under the Stairs remake.

While there is no word yet on whether or not Peele will write the film, Peele and Win Rosenfeld will be producing the remake for Universal. The original film was directed by Wes Craven and was released twenty-nine years ago this week.  It was a film that combined horror and satire to address themes like class warfare and gentrification in a way that was fun and enlightening. There is no word yet on when this film is going to happen. This seems like a right fit for the kind of socially relevant genre film that Peele makes and a fun take on a classic.
