Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key Reunite For Henry Selick's Stop-Motion Animated Netflix Film WENDELL AND WILD
Jordan Peele, hot off his Oscar win for Get Out, is teaming up again with his Key & Peele partner Keegan-Michael Key for a new movie called Wendell and Wild. This is a stop-motion animated film project set up at Netflix, and it's being directed by Henry Selick, the man who previously brought us The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline. Selick also co-wrote the script with Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman (The Boy). When previously talking about the movie, Selick offered the following story details:
"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."
Key and Peele will provide the voices of the demon brothers. This sounds like the perfect project for everyone involved. I'm especially excited that Key and Peele will be working on a project together again. The last time they made a movie together was the 2016 cat caper comedy Keanu.
Selick was previously working on an animated film for Disney called The Shadow King, but after spending $50 million on the project Disney canceled it. I was really curious about that project, but at least he's got a new film cooking and it sounds like it could be fun.
