Jordan Peele is quickly becoming the filmmaking M.V.P. of 2017. The comedian’s directorial debut, the excellent social thriller Get Out, catapulted him to blockbuster success—delivering smart commentary on modern racism, crushing box office myths, and teaching viewers to never trust people who eat Froot Loops one at a time. Throughout the press tour for his film, Peele repeatedly mentioned that he had more social thrillers in store that he’d like to make. Now Universal is throwing its full support behind his vision.

The director just signed a two-year first look overall deal with the studio, which will enable him to write and direct new projects, as well as produce films through his Monkeypaw Productions banner, according to the Hollywood Reporter. He’s already prepping his next social thriller, but this time the budget will be five times larger than the $5 million micro-budget he worked with for his first film. Get Out was produced by Blumhouse and distributed by Universal. It ended up pulling in about $194 million worldwide.
