Production begins next spring
Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele, better known together as the comedic duo Key & Peele, have just signed on for their first movie together.
The film, titled Keanu, tells the story of a kidnapped cat and will begin production next spring, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film will be under the banner of New Line Cinema, with whom the two comedians recently agreed to produce a remake of the iconic Police Academy franchise.
The pair’s hugely popular sketch show Key & Peele just entered its fourth season and has been nominated for five Emmy awards.
Although Key and Peele have done individual roles in films like The Lego Movie and Little Fockers respectively, this is the first feature film on which they will be working together.
