Default Jordan Peele Reportedly Wants To Make A Gargoyles Movie At Disney

At this point, Jordan Peele has risen as one of the most promising and intriguing filmmakers in Hollywood. The blockbuster box office debut of Get Out made him a hot commodity for studios, and his Oscar win offered him unprecedented prestige as he moved into his next endeavors. Speaking of which, we finally have more information about one specific project that Peele reportedly wants to take on in the future, as the Key & Peele star allegedly wants to adapt the classic Gargoylescartoon into a film for Disney.

It's no secret that Disney has spent quite a bit of time digging through its vault to update some classic pieces of intellectual property in recent years. On the heels of successful remakes like The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, Jordan Peele now wants to take the house of mouse in a slightly darker direction. Per a report from The Ankler, Peele has expressed interest in getting his hands on Gargoylesand adapting the cult classic cartoon to the big screen. Peele has reportedly pitched the idea to Disney, but the studio is apparently moving slowly with regards to whether or not it actually wants to buy into the idea.

Arguably obscure to some generations (at least by comparison to classic 1990s animation like Batman: The Animated Series or X-Men), Gargoyles remains a touchstone of 1990s cartoons that a lot of millennials will likely remember. Decidedly dark for a 1990s Disney cartoon, the show focused its story on a group of supernatural gargoyles who come to life at night to battle evil and cope with an ungrateful New York that neither likes nor understands them. The show ran for 78 episodes between 1994 and 1997, so there's plenty of pre-existing material for Jordan Peele to mine if he ever actually gets his hands on the property.

One notable element worth addressing about Jordan Peele's possible move to a Gargoyles adaptation for the folks at Disney is how much of a logical next step this feels like for him at this stage of his career. Peele made a name for himself as a dramatic filmmaker last year with the blockbuster debut of Get Out and his Oscar win, which opened up a lot of doors. Peele's work on Get Out showed how effective he could operate in dealing with weighty topics like racism, and weighty themes are also prevalent in the Gargoyles lore. The IP definitely seems to be a fit for Jordan Peele's established wheelhouse of strengths.

Only time will tell if Jordan Peele will ever actually get to direct a Gargoyles movie for Disney. That said, it's an intriguing concept, and we will bring you more information related to this story as it develops. For now, Jordan Peele's next movie gig is going to be the movie US, and the project has already added Black Panther's Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke, so it could be a while before any decision is made on what comes after.
