Two of the most dependable names in Hollywood will next look to combine their talents for an upcoming supernatural thriller from Universal Pictures. As first reported by THR, Jordan Peele and Issa Rae will team up to produce a new feature titled Sinkhole.
Per the initial report, the upcoming film is based on a short story with the same title. Penned by Leyna Krow, the story follows a young family moving into what they believe is their dream home. However, standing in the way of their American dream is a huge, gaping sinkhole in the backyard. The tale takes a supernatural twist following the discovery that the sinkhole can transform broken things back to perfect, working condition. However, the present magic begs the question: what would the sinkhole do to a person? In addition to the supernatural elements, the film will reportedly tackle the question of female perfection and identity.
Peele and Rae are on-board to produce the upcoming feature with Issa Rae also circling a starring role in it. Additionally, Leyna Krow, the story’s author, will serve as the film’s executive producer. Moreover, Montrel McKay, Sara Rastogi, and Win Rosenfeld will assist with producer duties as well.
Jordan Peele has come a long way since his days on Comedy Central’s Key & Peele. The filmmaker touts a victory for Best Original Screenplay at the 90th Academy Awards for his work on Get Out. Additionally, Peele’s litany of acclaimed projects includes Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, Us, and Toy Story 4. On the other hand, Issa Rae’s rise to prominence stems from her Golden Globe-nominated HBO series Insecure. Recently, the actress starred alongside Kumail Nanjiani in The Lovebirds and Lakeith Stanfield in The Photograph.
