Sinkhole will borrow from its short story source material of the same by Leyna Krow. A young family finally moves into their dream home, but there is a giant eyesore of a sinkhole in the backyard. The family figures out the sinkhole has the magic ability to transform broken things back to their original perfect form. They dabble with the idea of what would happen if a person went down the sinkhole.

The film is part of Peele’s overarching deal with Universal Pictures.
