Steven Yeun will star in Jordan Peele's next movie.
The former Walking Dead actor is set to join the project, which is expected to be released in July 2022, alongside Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer.
The premise of the flick is being kept under wraps but Palmer is reportedly poised to play a villain in the movie.
Peele is writing, directing and producing the film, which is backed by Universal. Pictures. The new movie will mark the third time that Peele has teamed up with the studio after they collaborated on his acclaimed horror films Get Out and Us.
Get Out was a success both critically and commercially and landed Peele the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
Yeun is currently starring in Minari, for which he received a Best Actor Oscar nomination. The family drama also picked nods for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Supporting Actress.
Yuen, 37, is also featured in the adult animated series Invincible from Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. He recently signed on to star alongside Ali Wong in the Netflix comedy series Beef. — BANG SHOWBIZ
