Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key to star in “Wendell and Wild”

Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key are re-teaming for Netflix’s stop-motion film Wendell and Wild. 

The comedic duo is to star in the middle-grade novel of the same name, which is co-authored by Clay McLeod Chapman and Henry Selick. The stop-motion feature will be directed by Selick who is also writing the script with McLeod Chapman and Peele. Argentinian artist Pablo Lobato will be designing all the characters for the feature.

Key and Peele are set to voice the titular demon brothers — Wendell (Peele) and Wild (Key) —  forced to face-off against their arch-enemy in order to earn their way out of hell.

Chapman announced the news Wednesday on Twitter, writing, “Hi. Henry Selick (Coraline, Nightmare Before Xmas) and I are writing a children’s book titled WENDELL & WILD for Simon & Schuster. It’s going to become a movie at @Netflix starring Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key. Directed by Henry. Written by Henry, Jordan and… me. Heaven.”
