Jordan Peele Explains Why He Left Acting to Focus on Filmmaking

Jordan Peele is discussing his transition from acting to filmmaking.

During a “Get Out The Vote” fundraiser event earlier this week, the 41-year-old actor, writer, and director had a very cheeky way of explaining why he left acting to focus on filmmaking.

“I like watching my movies. I can watch the films I direct [but] watching me perform just feels like, it’s a bad kind of masturbatory. It’s masturbation you don’t enjoy,” Jordan explained, via THR. “I feel like I got to do so much and it is a great feeling. When I think about those great moments when you’re basking in something you said that feels funny. When I think about all that, I think I got enough.”

Jordan has found a lot of success outside of acting. At the 2018 Oscars, Jordan‘s directorial debut Get Out was nominated for four awards, including Best Picture. Jordan won the award for Best Original Screenplay for the movie.

He also directed, wrote, and produced the acclaimed horror movie Us, which was released in 2019.

Jordan‘s upcoming movie Candyman – which he wrote and produced – is scheduled to be released on August 27, 2021.

Jordan Peele's 'Candyman' Looks to Be Just as Scary as 'Get Out' & 'Us' - Watch the Trailer!

It looks like Jordan Peele is going to deliver ANOTHER hit horror film! The trailer for Candyman just debuted and it does not disappoint! He wrote the film alongside Win Rosenfeld and Nia DaCosta. Nia directed the movie.

Here’s a synopsis: For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.

With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

The film will hit theaters on June 12!
