Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key Reunite for Stop-Motion Film “Wendell and Wild”

They’re back! Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key will be reuniting and get ready, because it’s coming sooner than you think! It has been reported than Netflix has landed a Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key stop-motion animation film Wendell and Wild.

According to Variety, the comedy duo will voice two demon brothers – Wendell (Peele) and Wild (Key) –as they are forced to fight against their arch-enemy in order to earn their way out of hell. The film, which is said to be based on a forthcoming children’s book of the same name, will be directed by co-author of the novel and acclaimed director Henry Selick (Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas).

“Wendell and Wild’ is a comedy about two scheming demon brothers who must face their arch-nemesis, the demon-dusting nun Sister Helly, and her two acolytes, the goth teens Kat and Raoul,” Selick said to Variety back in 2015.

Co-author of the impending book, Clay McLeod Chapman, took to twitter to announce the children’s book and the Netflix film.

Along with Selick, Peele will produce the film under his Monkeypaw Productions banner along with Ellen Goldsmith-Vein (The Maze Runner) for The Gotham Group. Peele will also pen the script for the film along with Selick and Chapman. As Varietyreports, Argentinean artist Pablo Lobato will be designing the characters for the forthcoming film.

The comedy duo created the hit sketch comedy series “Key & Peele,” which ran for five season on Comedy Central. After its debut back in 2012, the series became an instant hit and earned several award nominations and won two Primetime Emmy Awards. The last time the two joined forces was back in 2016 on the action-comedy Keanu.

Recently, Peele earned himself his first Oscar for his 2017 blockbuster “Get Out.” Peele made history when he earned the award when he became the first African American screenwriter to earn an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
