What is the only way for Jordan Peele to follow up from Get Out? To tell the true story of a black man who infiltrated the KKK.

Shadow and Act has reported that Peele has partnered with Spike Lee to create the thriller Black Klansman. The film will focus on the true story of Ron Stallworth, a black police officer who was able to infiltrate the KKK. This project will finally bring John David Washington, the son of Denzel Washington, to the big screen in a big way. Currently, Washington stars on Ballers, but this film, which will start production in the fall, could really make Washington a huge film star.

Peele will produce with Lee, who will also act as director. Blumhouse Productions, who helped bring Get Out to theaters, is also behind the film as a producer. Peele and Lee, according to The Hollywood Reporter, have been working on this film for the past two years.

According to Shadow and Act via The Hollywood Reporter, the film will tell the story of Stallworth who, in 1978, answered an ad in the local newspaper looking for new Klan members.

“He not only gained membership, but rose through the ranks to become the head of the local chapter. Stallworth, who is black, was able to gather all sorts of intelligence by pretending to be a white supremacist on the phone or via other forms of correspondence but sent a white fellow officer in his place for any in-person meetings,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter. “During his undercover work, Stallworth managed to sabotage several cross-burnings and other activities of the notorious hate group.”

Stallworth wrote a book about his work in 2014 called—you guessed it—Black Klansman.

The theatrical release date hasn’t been announced, but is it too early to say that this might be up for Oscar noms when it comes out?
