Would you guys be here for more Daniel Kaluuya and Jordan Peele movies in the future? 

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, director Jordan Peele opened up about his work relationship with British actor, Daniel Kaluuya and it’s giving director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro.

Scorsese and De Niro have worked on multiple projects together– including Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Cape Fear, and The Irishman. 

According to Yahoo! News, Peele intends on working with Kaluuya for future projects and even refers to him as his De Niro. 

“It’s so funny, but by the point I was in the middle of [shooting] Get Out, that’s what I was telling him,” Peele recalled. “I was like [makes serious eye contact], ‘You’re my De Niro, man. You’re my De Niro.’ I was like, ‘I need you to be in the future ones too, man!’ You could just tell what we had in him as a performer, from the very beginning.”

The two men first worked together on their award-winning collaboration ‘Get Out, which was Kaluuya’s breakout movie role and Peele’s directorial debut. 

“We do have a bond,” Peele continued. “The first big movie he was a lead in, and my directorial debut, was Get Out. And we bonded because we went through that together. In the beginning of that, it feels like two people who have faith in each other, then by the end, it all works. So I just couldn’t wait to further that relationship and explore a completely new character with Daniel.”

Now, the dynamic duo is preparing to release ‘Nope.’ A Sci-Fi horror flick alongside Keke Palmer. In the movie, Kaluuya plays OJ Haywood. And Palmer plays his sister, Emerald Haywood. 

‘Nope’ will drop in theatres on July 22. Cousins, will you guys be tuning in?
