A new movie from Jordan Peele.

That’s really all you have to say to get butts in seats. The 43-year-old filmmaker delivered one of the most talked-about and acclaimed directorial feature debuts in decades with Get Out in 2017. Dealing with heavy and important topics in an entertaining and accessible way, the film was a celebrated box office triumph.

Fortunately, his follow-up feature Us in 2019 was no sophomore slump, cementing the director as one of the most promising new talents in cinema.

An ominous poster for his third movie Nope was all that was needed to generate speculation and intrigue. Since then, trailers and so forth have made it one of the most eagerly anticipated films of 2022. Now, the wait is over and we can finally see if great things come in threes for Jordan Peele.

Before or after you check it out, you may find yourself curious about the movie’s striking filming locations too. So, where was Nope filmed?

Where was Nope filmed?

Nope was filmed in California, with the majority of sequences captured in Los Angeles County.

The Cinemaholic reports the entirety of the shoot took place in California between June and July of 2021.

Nope’s cast and crew got to work in the northwestern Los Angeles County city of Santa Clarita and shot a number of scenes in the middle of the city. However, they then moved on to film the all-important ranch sequences at a real-life place called Firestone Ranch.

You can find it at 35100 Anthony Road in Agua Dulce and you can check out plenty of stills over on the website. It proved to be the ideal location. After all, rather than creating the illusion of a ranch why not add a little extra authenticity and film at one for real?

Of course, the creative team made a number of changes to the ranch to make it perfect for Nope.

Beyond that, The Cinemaholic adds that additional shooting took place in Los Angeles.

‘I knew the world would want to be outside’

Speaking of filming, the very idea of being out and filming influenced Jordan Peele when he was writing the script.

“I wrote [the film] trapped inside and so I knew I wanted to make something that was about the sky,” he explained during an interview with GQ.

“I knew the world would want to be outside and at the same time, I knew we had this newfound fear from this trauma, from this time of what it meant to go outside. Can we go outside? So I slipped some of that stuff in.”

Keke Palmer (who plays Em) also weighed in: “Filming gave me an escape. We did have a couple run-ins that kind of jolted us back into [reality].”
