Horror Master Jordan Peele’s Next Movie Will Arrive in October 2026

EXCLUSIVES

It’s no hyperbole to say that Jordan Peele is currently on a track pioneered by Steven Spielberg and now reserved for the likes of M. Night Shyamalan, Christopher Nolan, and Greta Gerwig — in other words, visionaries and auteurs who’ve crossed over into the mainstream and put butts in seats on the strength of their name alone. It helps that they typically assemble ridiculously talented ensembles, high-concept premises, and embark on marketing campaigns that drum up excitement over what genuinely feels like can’t-miss spectacles. And, yeah, it doesn’t hurt that they tend to make original movies (or, at the very least, adaptations that feel like nothing else we’ve seen before) at a time when those kinds of movies are becoming more and more of an endangered species.

So now that we know that Peele has lined up his fourth feature film, speculation will inevitably turn towards what it could possibly end up being about. The filmmaker has already tackled several of the most frightening concepts ever put to film: UFOs, malevolent doppelgängers, and, of course, casually racist white people. So what’s left for the multihyphenate to explore? Well, there have been recent reports that Peele took a meeting with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, but tell me: What’s scarier than one of our most promising and exciting artists potentially shackling himself to a superhero franchise that currently appears to be running on fumes?

In all seriousness, we’d expect Peele’s career trajectory to continue on its rapidly-rising curve. So go ahead and clear the entirety of October 2026 in your calendars. Nothing you do that month will be better than heading to theaters for the next Jordan Peele joint.
