Lupita Nyong'o Reacts to Possibility of an 'Us' Sequel

Us was a huge hit this year, grossing over $250 million worldwide, but don’t count on the film’s star Lupita Nyong’o to make a sequel.

The 36-year-old Oscar-winning actress is getting tons of awards buzz for her performance and she reacted to the possibility of a sequel at Deadline‘s Contenders event.

“No thanks. Red is dead,” Lupita responded. She said she is not interested in reprising her duel roles as it was “very very very challenging.”

“I had to hold down both sides of the argument,” she said. “I had to be the offender and the offended. It was about understanding the emotional landscape of each character but also having a very strict discipline to play both physically and mentally.”
