Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are developing a stop-motion animated comedy with Henry Selick, the director behind movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline. According to several trade magazines Wendell and Wild doesn’t have a buyer yet, but its premise is promising. The movie will track the spat between a pair of demon brothers and the nun (and accompanying goth teens) who set out to slay them. Selick is set to direct, produce, and co-write the movie with Peele, and it could become the former’s first full-length release since Coraline in 2009.
Wendell and Wild is the latest in a string of ambitious ventures for Key and Peele, who are using their first months post-Key & Peele to stretch their creative legs. It was revealed last month that the duo are making an undercover cop comedy with King Bach for FOX, and they’re still working with Judd Apatow on a feature-length comedy for Universal. They’re also racking up guest appearances and voice work both together and apart across film and TV, from Fargo and Pitch Perfect 2 to Rick & Morty and their upcoming movie Keanu. The exact order in which all of these projects will be released isn’t yet clear, but it’s obvious that Key & Peele fans won’t have to worry about going hungry over the next few years.
