Key & Peele

We already know that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the sketch comedy duo better known as Key & Peele, are teaming with Judd Apatow for a comedy feature film, producing the reboot of Police Academy, and they're also developing a feature film for their substitute teacher character Mr. Garvey. But now they have another project in the works at New Line as Deadline reports the two are shifting their focus to a comedy called Keanu. Sadly, the film doesn't focus on Keanu Reeves, but instead follows friends who pose as drug dealers to infiltrate the criminal underworld in order to retrieve the title character, a stolen cat.

Keanu will beat all the other developing comedies to the punch with production beginning in April in Los Angeles. Key & Peele will both star in the film with the latter scripting with Alex Rubens, who writes on the duo's Comedy Central series as well as "Community." Directing will be Peter Attencio, who has been at the helm of every single episode of "Key & Peele" and has done a great job giving the sketches cinematic style, especially when parodying big screen targets. Peele teases, "The movie should resonate with a large audience as almost everyone has had a house pet stolen by a street gang, right?” Sound good?
