The movie, about a biracial couple heading to meet the woman’s white parents, was critically acclaimed and turned into a smash hit, netting over $255 million worldwide on a shoestring budget of only $4.5 million. The film has garnered a slew of accolades, including four Academy Award nominations — Best Picture, Best Actor (Daniel Kaluuya), Best Original Screenplay and Best Director for Peele.

Following the film’s huge success, Peele has officially retired his acting cap — he was co-creator of the sketch comedy show “Key and Peele” and appeared in a number of TV and film roles — and has several other ideas in the works that will put him behind the scenes. One of them just may be a sequel to his breakout movie.

“I will definitely, seriously consider it,” Peele recently told THR. “I love that universe and feel like there’s more story to tell. I don’t know what it is now, but there are some loose ends.”

The movie (SPOILER ALERT) was about a black character named Chris, played by Daniel Kaluuya, successfully getting away from his murderous white girlfriend Rose Armitage, played by Allison Williams, and her killer family members and eventually being saved by his TSA agent buddy Rod, leaves room for a sequel.  

In addition to his big professional success in 2017, Peele had personal success, as well.

The director and his comedian wife Chelsea Peretti, the star of Fox’s cop sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” became the parents of a baby boy, named Beaumont Gino, last July.

Peele, 38, and Peretti, 39, after four yeears of dating, got hitched in a secret ceremony in 2016 that was witnessed only by their dog.
