The Sunken Place May Not Be Finished With Us “Get Out” Oscar nominated director Jordan Peele says he will “definitely seriously consider” following up with a sequel to his smash hit “Get Out”. Peele recently said in interviews that “I love that universe and I feel there is more story to tell.” The critically acclaimed movie gave audiences a satirical look at racism through the eyes of a young Black man involved in a bi-racial love relationship. When his girlfriend invites him home to meet the family he learns that he is the next intended victim in a heinous plot to steal his body and use it to transfer White patients who are sick or elderly. Peele says he doesn’t know what angle he would explore in a sequel but he says “there are some loose ends” that he would like to tie up.

It seems all the whispers and rumors about getting the band back together could lead to something like, maybe the “Martin”reboot. TMZ recently caught up with cast stars Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell-Martin(Gina) and Tichina Arnold (Pam). The trio tried to be coy with Martin Lawrence saying “Never say never” when asked about about a possible TV reunion. Actress Arnold chimed in with a vague “Within life there’s always new beginnings and there’s always change and there’s always new plateaus, so we’ll see what’s happening,” before Campbell-Martin finally said, “We can’t tell y’all s—”. Though no one really confirmed it, the possibility of a reunion was enough to get the internet buzzing with hope. If the reboot turns out to be true, the reunion show would be minus one main cast member–actor Tommy Ford who played “Tommy” died two years ago.
