Even though Jordan Peele has announced his intention to stay away from sketch comedy for the foreseeable future, his partnership with friend and big fan Keegan-Michael Key is still burning bright. Variety reports that the two have signed on to lend their voices to Netflix’s Wendell and Wild, the next stop-motion animation feature from Coraline director Henry Selick. Key and Peele would play the titular characters, a pair of brothers who happen to be demons, who end up in a showdown against their nemesis so they can get out of hell. Wendell and Wild sounds like a cartoon much more suited to Peele’s talents and interests than the role of Poop in The Emoji Movie, and he is also co-writing the script with Selick and Clay McLeod Chapman. The Oscar winner is also producing through his production company, Monkeypaw.
