Even though the ending of the Comedy Central series Key and Peele earlier this year left us sad, the good news that is left the comedy duo of Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key open to some big screen projects. And one of those promising opportunities just came to light.
Key and Peele are teaming up with Henry Selick (director of Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline) for a new stop-motion animation comedy called Wendell and Wild, and it sounds like it’s going to be another twisted endeavor. Read More »

Key and Peele is over, and we’ve known that the shift away from that show is in part thanks to Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele‘s interest in jumping to films.
The two have a couple projects in the works, one of which is a horror film with Peele directing. Now more details about that movie have been revealed, and the Jordan Peele horror movie is a collaboration with Blumhouse called Get Out. It’s a movie that, in some ways, seems to fit right into the Key and Peele writing approach. Get the details below. Read More »
Key and Peele is gone; take a moment to reflect on the show’s passing. The show’s lead duo, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, pulled the old Police move, quitting the show while it was on top and in so doing allowing the five-season series to go out on a high note. The last two episodes aired last night, with quite a few memorable sketches.
One that is right in our wheelhouse is a terrific gag about Ray Parker Jr theme songs. Jordan Peele plays the man behind the hit Ghostbusters theme song, running through a whole batch of themes Parker wrote in secret, previously shared only with “the highest level of industry decision-makers.” No one ever bit on these tunes, because the literal theme song approach really doesn’t work for, say, 12 Years a Slave. Now, however, we can all enjoy them. Read More »
Let’s get one thing straight: Gremlins 2 is a very funny film with a hell of a lot of energy, and one of the best jokes on the studio idea of sequel creation that has ever been made. I love the movie. You can’t ding Gremlins 2 for being ridiculous and excessive, because it knows it is excessive. That’s the entire point of the film.
That doesn’t mean this Key and Peele sketch about the creation of Gremlins 2 isn’t hilarious, because many of same jokes within could be applied to a lot of films that aren’t nearly as entertaining as Joe Dante’s 1990 sequel to his original 1984 film. Jordan Peele plays “the hollywood sequel doctor,” who goes from observing the Gremlins 2 writer’s room brainstorming session to taking it over and pushing things in absurd directions that will be familiar to anyone who has seen the film.

I love the fact that Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and their Key & Peele director Peter Atencio are making a movie called Keanu. Even more, I love that it has nothing to do with Keanu Reeves. What else would anyone associate with the name Keanu?
The film is a comedy (obviously), and they’re giving us some idea of what to expect just from that title choice. Oh, and the movie is about a cat. And now Will Forte, who made it through the first season of The Last Man on Earth and has a second season to look forward to, has joined the expanding cast of the film. Read More »

For the past three years, Jordan Peele has succeeded in making us laugh as one-half of Comedy Central’s Key and Peele. Now he wants to make us scream.
Peele is set to write and direct a horror film called Get Out. While this will be his first attempt at straight-faced horror, it’s not that crazy a leap. His many horror-influenced sketches on Key and Peele have demonstrated that he his way around the look, feel, and traditions of the genre. Hit the jump for more on the Jordan Peele horror movie.
