Expansive horror epic, Nope will be released by Universal Pictures worldwide in theaters on July 22nd.
It reunites Peele with Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya, who is joined by Keke PalmeR and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun as residents in a lonely gulch, for a chilling discovery.
Keke Palmer has revealed how thrilled she was to have an opportunity to work with Daniel Kaluuya.
She was delighted to be offered a role in NOPE, because she would finally get a chance to share a project together with the “talented actor”.
She said in a recent interview “I love Daniel, I’ve always wanted to work with him. It’s one thing to be like ‘Oh my gosh I’m going to be in Jordan Peele’s movie, but then I’m going to be in Jordan Peele’s movie that he’s doing again with Daniel!’“
Daniel became a household name thanks to his performance in ‘Get Out’ but KeKe knew the former ‘Skins’ actor would be a star long before then.
She said: “When I saw his episode of ‘Black Mirror’ I said he’s really good, like good for real. Acting acting“.
“So when ‘Get Out’ came out I knew it was going to be good ’cause I was like, ‘They got the man from the Black Mirror episode!'”
Although KeKe and Daniel have become close friends now, the actress admitted it was hard to get to know her British co-star properly during filming because he was using an American accent.
She said: “Working with him was incredible. It’s funny, I got some of his personality when we were working but I really got his personality when he was able to use his accent.
