Jordan Peele gave us another unforgettable modern horror with Nope and it seems he’s 100% ready to say “yep” to its sequel. The acclaimed director is open to revisiting this universe and telling more stories set in the world of his latest film.

Peele discussed the possibility of revisiting the world of Nope in a recent interview with The New York Times. The director was asked about the mysterious character “Nobody”, played by Michael Busch, who only appeared in the final trailer but not in the film itself, and hinted there’s more to him than meets the eye.

“People are doing a lot of interesting detective work, is what’s going on. The story of that character has yet to be told, I can tell you that… I do think [fans] will get more answers on some of these things in the future. We’re not over telling all of these stories,” said Peele.

Nope premiered on July 22 to generally positive reviews, and went on to earn $150 million against a $68 million budget. It stars Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, and Brandon Perea, and centers on residents of a remote Californian ravine, who make a chilling discovery that forever changes their lives.
