The story arc of Jordan Peele’s Nope may not be complete just yet. After the box office smash hit theaters, fans began to comb through the film’s IMDb page to learn more about the cast and crew. Ultimately, moviegoers began to stumble upon an actor by the name of Michael Busch, who is credited for playing a mysterious character that doesn’t exactly appear on the screen. During a recent interview with the New York Times, Peele hinted that the film’s Easter egg might lay the groundwork for the next chapter in the Nope universe.
“The story of that character has yet to be told, I can tell you that,” Peele said.
“Which is another frustrating way of saying, I’m glad people are paying attention. I do think they will get more answers on some of these things in the future. We’re not over telling all of these stories.”
Peele’s answer may not confirm another film under the Nope umbrella, but it is a step in the right direction for curious fans. The critically-acclaimed director is also set to work on a number of projects, including Abruptio and Wendell and Wild. Not to mention, his latest work, Nope, is closing in on the $150 million mark at the box office. With a budget of $68, Peele’s work is on track to pull in a profit of $100 million.
