Jordan Peele’s next film will hit theaters on March 15, 2019.

Universal Pictures, where Peele has a new two-year deal following the blockbuster success of Get Out, announced the release date Monday.

Peele will write, direct and produce the untitled social thriller. The project is looking to have a larger canvas than Get Out as the budget will be about five times bigger than the low-budget movie Peele made with producer Jason Blum.

Get Out, a horror-thriller that deftly exposes racism, has grossed nearly $230 million at the worldwide box office since opening in February against a $5 million budget. The movie’s enormous success — and flush profit margins — have made Peele a directing sensation.

Universal signed the first-look overall production deal with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions banner earlier this month.
