Who says miracles can’t happen? Not us, and not Hollywood! Oscar-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele may have recently stated that he was off the acting wagon, but like Jack Bauer and John McClane, he keeps getting dragged back in.
Deadline has revealed that he will be reuniting with Key and Peele co-star Keegan-Michael Key to voice a pair of characters for director Henry Selick, who is best known for his stop-motion work, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline.
This next project is titled Wendell and Wild, and it will be yet another stop-motion feature that will be bankrolled and distributed by streaming giant Netflix. in the film, Key and Peele will be playing two scheming demon brothers.
Though while Peele is back in the acting saddle, he won’t simply be behind the mic on this one. The report states that the film is based on an idea from Selick and that Peele and Clay Mcleod Chapman will be assisting him in script duties. Given that Peele just won an Oscar for his work on Get Out, it’s certainly a good move, especially if they’ll be dabbling in the creepy.
Wendell and Wild will be Netflix’s second stop-motion film, but the first one they will be financing from its inception.
