Before his historic Oscar win, Peele took home the Independent Spirit Award for Best Director for his move 'Get Out'. In a press conference following the award ceremony, Peele took the opportunity to address the growing rumors of a possible sequel to the critically-acclaimed film.

Peele said that he would definitely consider it. Only if something really good comes his way. "We are not closed off to a sequel," Peele said to the press. "This is not the kind of movie you make a sequel just to make a sequel and make more money. This movie transcends the business that it did. So if I can get a story that feels worthy as a follow-up in this world, we’ll do it … and if not, then absolutely not.”

Peele feels like the times are changing, and that mainstream media is now including nuances that are a part of everyday life. He said that the stories that were explored were truly inspiring to him and adds on to his creative process. "I think all these stories, all these voices, many of them we’ve seen this year, have an impact. I meant what I said. I think that expression, conversation, that is the weapon against violence,” Peele said “That is the weapon against bigotry and hatred. This movie that I made, we dove straight into the topic of bigotry and racism. We did it in an entertaining way. But I’m inspired by everything I’ve seen this year.”

Along with winning the Best Director award, 'Get Out' won Best Feature at the award show on Saturday. 

Peele is right. 'Get Out' has a unique storyline that explores the themes of racism and bigotry. A sequel to the movie would honestly be overkill. But, if the sequel explored similar social struggles, then we could have another epic horror film to look forward to.
