Collider reports that Sorry to Bother You actor Steven Yeun has been tapped to star in Jordan Peele's upcoming Twilight Zone reboot for CBS All Access. Yeun, who was named Best Supporting Actor at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for his role in the drama Burning last week, will play the lead character in an episode titled "The Traveler." Other details regarding his appearance are unknown at the moment. Other notable names already attached to the series include John Cho, Kumail Nanjiani, Sanaa Lathan, Adam Scott, and Jacob Tremblay.
Peele will serve as executive producer, host, and narrator of this Twilight Zone revival. While there is no date set for the series premiere next year, it will surely be part of what's becoming a multi-faceted 2019 campaign for the Oscar-winning writer and director of Get Out. Peele will reunite with Keegan-Michael Key and the two will lend their voices for the roles of Bunny and Ducky in the upcoming Toy Story movie.
Peele will return to the director's chair for the widely-anticipated horror film Us. He will also step back in front of the camera for Abruptio. There are a number of projects coming out next year in which he will produce, such as Lorena, and The Hunt for Amazon Video, as well as Weird City for YouTube Premium, which he also co-wrote.
