Jordan Peele’s 4th film set for October 2026 release

Jordan Peele’s highly anticipated fourth film will debut in theatres on October 23, 2026, as announced by Universal Pictures on Monday, per Originally slated for a December 2024 release, the film was delayed due to the recent industry strike. 

As is typical for Peele’s projects, details about the film remain tightly under wraps. However, Peele expressed his enthusiasm for the project earlier this year. “I do feel like my next project is clear to me,” he shared on Conan O’Brien’s podcast in January. “I’m psyched that I have another film that could be my favourite movie if I make it right.”

Peele’s previous films — Get Out, Us and Nope — have collectively grossed $683 million worldwide, solidifying his reputation as a master of socially conscious horror. His debut film, Get Out, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017 and went on to win Peele an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, along with nominations for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Daniel Kaluuya.

Under Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, which has a first-look deal with Universal, several new projects are in the pipeline. One notable upcoming release is Justin Tipping’s Him, scheduled for September 19, 2025. Based on a Black List screenplay by Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie, Him features Marlon Wayans and Tyriq Withers in a story about a young football player training with a legendary quarterback.

As fans eagerly await more details on Peele’s latest film, the anticipation underscores his significant impact on the horror genre and contemporary cinema.
