Key And Peele to Collab on Netflix Stop Motion Film

The feature will star the Oscar-winning writer and director of Get Out, Jordan Peele, and his frequent comedy collaborator, Keegan-Michael Key.

From 2012 to 2015, Key and Peele worked on the popular eponymous comedy show, famously creating Obama's "anger translator", a character who expressed the emotions that the then-president was secretly feeling.

The duo are teaming up as the voice actors in Netflix's Wendell and Wild, a stop-motion animated feature to be directed by Coraline and Nightmare Before Christmas director Henry Selick.

Peele is also serving as the film's screen-writer, alongside Clay McLeod Chapman, based on an original idea by Selick.

Dubbed "Wendell and Wild", the film's exact plot details are now under-wraps but will involve Peele and Key voicing a pair of "scheming demon brothers" who (according to Screen Rant) are facing off against demon-dusting nun Sister Helly and her acolytes, Goth teens Kat and Raoul. Argentinian artist Pablo Lobato will be designing all the characters. It would be quite entertaining to see Key and Peele back together after their lukewarm performer "Keanu".

Peele will produce through his company Monkeypaw alongside Selic and The Gotham Group's Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. Peele is working with Selick to write the script for the project.

A release date for Wendell and Wild is yet to be announced.
