Jordan Peele opened up about his upcoming horror thriller, "Nope." The 43-year-old actor, who served as a director of this movie, disclosed details about the "black horror."

"It's so tricky being considered in the vanguard of Black horror because obviously, Black horror is so very real," Peele told Essence in an interview published Tuesday. "And it's hard to do it in a way that's not retraumatizing and sad."

Peele went on to share how he was working on his third horror flick starring Black actors in the leading role - considering he previously directed 2017's "Get Out" and 2019's "Us" - and "realized that the movie had to be about Black joy as well, in order to fit what the world needs at this moment."

"So that is part of why there's sort of a spectrum of tonality of genre in here," he explained. "Because I wanted to give the horror, but I also wanted to give our characters agency and adventure and hope and joy and fun that they deserve."

Peele explained that he wants to make a film that "transcends the horror genre" with the upcoming project, recalling that the "first film clip [Eadweard Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion] was essentially a Black man on a horse who has been forgotten and erased."

However, the new movie is going to be a "celebration and a response to that [movie]," the director said, adding, "We can be the leads not only of a horror movie but also action, adventure, comedy, etcetera."

"Nope" features actors like Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya in the lead. The flick will also feature Steven Yeun, Barbie Ferreira, Brandon Perea and Michael Wincott.

Aside from directing movies, Peele has been a regular on TV series, "Big Mouth" since 2017 and portrays the character of the Ghost of Duke Ellington. He also voiced Fanny's character in "The Bob's Burgers Movie," which was released on May 17.

Considering his upcoming projects, Peele will be lending his voice to Netflix's animated movie, "Wendell and Wild." He will voice Wild's character in the movie. The actor will also be voicing a character in another animated movie, titled "Abruptio," which is currently under post-production.
