LOS ANGELES (AP) — Comedian-turned-filmmaker Jordan Peele is following up the remarkable success of “Get Out” with a provocative original thriller set for release in March 2019.

Universal Pictures announced the release date for the as-yet-untitled film on Monday.

Peele’s buzzy directorial debut “Get Out” became a box office phenomenon this year, grossing $229.6 million worldwide on a production budget of only $4.5 million.

Universal Pictures distributed “Get Out” and has since inked a first-look deal with Peele and his Monkeypaw Productions.
