Epic News for Jordan Peele

This has already been a great year for the writer and director.

Jordan Peele is winning 2017 in ever conceivable way. His directorial debut, Get Out, is a major success, with the horror flick taking over social media — and he already has four more "social thrillers" lined up.
But the year just got even better for Peele.

According to, Peele will be named the director of the year at CinemaCon. The managing director at CinemaCon said, "With the phenomenon known as Get Out, Jordan Peele has instantaneously become a force to reckon with as a gifted and enormously talented director and filmmaker. He has audiences and critics around the globe enamored and spellbound, dare I say hypnotized, with his wildly inventive directorial debut, and we are ecstatic to be honoring him as this year’s ‘Director of the Year.'”

Congrats to Jordan! Check our interview with the cast of Get Out above, with BET Celebs.
