Key and Peele’s First Film ‘Keanu’ Will Be About a Kidnapped Cat

Key and PeeleFrom a Police Academy reboot to a Substitute Teacher movie to a collaboration with Judd Apatow, Comedy Central stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have been in talks to develop a ton of film projects lately. Deadline reports that they’ve lined up their first official film with New Line, and it’s definitely the weirdest of all the projects in their pipeline. Written by Peele and Key and Peele/Community writer Alex Rubens, Keanu will tell “the story of friends who pose as drug dealers to infiltrate the criminal underworld, all to retrieve a stolen kitty.” Here’s how Peele summed it up: “The movie should resonate with a large audience as almost everyone has had a house pet stolen by a street gang, right?” No other details on Keanu have been revealed, but Key and Peele director Peter Atencio is in talks to helm the project, which is slated to begin shooting in April 2015.
