Peele continued his emergence as a director of heady horror with Us, which shattered the domestic box office record for original horror movies with a $70 million opening weekend in March. Peele is also helping filmmakers from all backgrounds get past Hollywood gatekeepers. Peele’s production company, Monkeypaw, accepted open script submissions this year, a rare move for an enterprise as hot as his.
