The year is not yet done and Jordan Peele’s horror masterpiece “Get Out” has already been declared the most profitable movie of the year.

The movie, which is the highest-grossing original screenplay ever,  had a 630 percent return on investment, according to TheWrap.

Peele was given a $4.5 million budget by Blumhouse production house to work with on “Get Out,” grossing $252 million worldwide. M. Night Shyamalan‘s “Split”, also produced by Blumhouse, had a 610 percent return on investments on a global haul of $277 million. It is the second-highest most profitable film of the year.

We look forward to seeing Peele's next project after inking a two-year deal with Universal Pictures.

Congrats!
