Monkeypaw Productions


Since his Oscar-winning success with frightfest “Get Out” (2017), Peele has flipped his brand from actor/funnyman to auteur/mini-mogul dedicated to exploring the dark side of race relations in the horror-sci fi genre across projects such as HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” and 2021 feature “Candyman,” pushed back to 2021 due to COVID-19. He produced Amazon’s cartoonish revenge drama “Hunters,” starring Al Pacino, and earned an Oscar nomination for best picture as one of the producers of Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman.” In October 2019, Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions signed an exclusive five-year deal that will have him write, direct and produce his next two films for Universal, the first of which is due out in 2022. He also gave back through Monkeypaw, donating a million dollars in June to five organizations challenging racial inequity, including Black Lives Matter.
