Nope is a 2022 American science fiction horror thriller film written, directed, and co-produced by Jordan Peele under his Monkeypaw Productions banner. Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, and Brandon Perea, it follows two ranch-owning siblings who attempt to capture evidence of an unidentified flying object. Peele officially announced his then-untitled third directorial film in November 2020. Palmer and Kaluuya joined in February 2021, with Yeun being cast the next month, and Peele revealed the title in July 2021. Filming took place during fall 2021 in northern Los Angeles county, wrapping in November. The title was rumored to be an acronym for “Not of Planet Earth” or “Not Our Planet Earth” based on the movie poster, but Peele later revealed that the title refers to the reaction he hoped to elicit from audiences.
