Black excellence: ‘Us’ actor Evan Alex says he’s talked with Jordan Peele about writing his own horror film


ABC/Todd WawrychukUs star Evan Alex is taking a page out of actor Marsai Martin‘s handbook.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, 11-year-old Alex, who starred as the youngest son of the Wilson family in the Jordan Peele horror film, says he’s now working on his own horror story.

“I’m working on my own project,” Alex told THR. “I’m writing a script. … I’ve talked to Jordan about it. I’ve talked to him about the horror and about how I want this to be a little like Game of Thrones.”

If Alex’s project does get the green light from a studio, he’ll be following in the footsteps of black-ish star Martin, who recently made history by becoming the youngest executive producer in Hollywood with her hit comedy film Little, and the youngest in recent history to sign a first-look deal with Universal Studios.
