Jordan Peele And Keegan-Michael Key Reunite For Henry Selick's Latest

Deadline is reporting that recent Best Original Screenplay Oscar victor Jordan Peele (Get Out) and Keegan-Michael Key (Don't Think Twice), formerly of Comedy Central's Key & Peele, have taken their stop-motion animated feature film Wendell and Wild to Netflix, which will finance and distribute.

Netflix has committed to finance and distribute the film.

Wendell and Wild follows two scheming demon brothers - Wendell (Peele) and Wild (Key) - who are forced to face off against their arch-enemy in order to earn their way out of hell. The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline director Henry Selick came up with the concept for the film, and he also co-wrote the script with Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman.

Over 500 genes linked to intelligence identified
Dr David Hill, of the University of Edinburgh said, 'Our study identified a large number of genes linked to intelligence . However, even with all these genes, it's still hard to predict a person's intelligence from their genomes.

This will be the first time Peele and Key have teamed up since the film Keanu in 2016.

Fresh off his Oscar win, Jordan Peele is going back to his roots - a comedy with Keegan-Michael Key. Both have done quite a lot of voice work for animated series and features: together they stole scenes as Alpha and Beta Wolf in Storks, and more recently Peele played Melvin in Captain Underpants and Key played Dave the dove in The Star.
