Allison Williams to Star in Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out’

Allison Williams is set to star in “Get Out,” a thriller written and directed by Jordan Peele.

QC Entertainment and Blumhouse Productions are producing the project. The story details are being kept under wraps. When the film was announced last month, Peele said the pic “takes on the task of exploring race in America, something that hasn’t really been done within the genre since ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ 47 years ago. It’s long overdue.”

Jason Blum and QC Entertainment principals Sean McKittrick and Edward H. Hamm Jr. are producing. Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson is executive producing alongside QC’s Ray Mansfield and Shaun Redick.

The film would mark Williams’ largest film role to date after she has made a name for herself on the TV scene. Besides costarring in “Girls” opposite Lena Dunham on HBO, she also recently appeared as Peter Pan in NBC’s live musical version of the classic tale opposite Christopher Walken.

She is repped by CAA and Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz.

Blumhouse most recent release “The Visit,” helmed by M. Night Shyamalan, has grossed $64 million at the box office.

Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
