Key & Peele Developing Stop-Motion Movie With THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS Director
There's rarely a day that goes by when I don't quote (or at least think about) Key & Peele, the brilliant Comedy Central sketch series led by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. The show ended earlier this year, but fans have been encouraged by the fact that Key has popped up in tons of new movies and shows lately and Peele is hard at work on his new horror movie Get Out. The duo promised that they'd work together again soon (they're already making a movie called Keanu), and now Variety reports that they're currently developing a new stop-motion movie with Henry Selick, the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline.
The movie is based on an original idea by Selick, and he'll co-write with Peele. The film's title is Wendell and Wild.
“‘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,” says Selick.
Sounds like another dark, kind of strange project from Selick, and considering Peele's love of horror movies, it's easy to see why he'd be excited about this project from that description. The comedy duo will presumably lend their voices to the two brothers, but that's all the information we have on the project at the moment. We'll keep you updated when we hear more, but in the meantime, what do you think about this collaboration?
