Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are working on an exciting new animated project with Henry Selick, the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline. According to Variety, the movie, Wendell and Wild will be about two demon brother who face their nemesis, the nun Sister Helly and her two goth teens acolytes, Kat and Raoul.

The duo’s manager says that the film is “not set up yet with a buyer” but the team is “passionate about the direction.” Selick will co-write with Peele, in addition to directing and producing. We know that the two are fans of horror movies and their skit about sexy vampires is hilarious so I definitely want to see this.

We were a bit down to see Key & Peele end, but it’s exciting to see the two of them work on a tons of new projects, including an upcoming cop comedy, guest appearances on various shows, and Jordan Peele’s Get Out, a smart horror film that will examine issues of race.

Wendell and Wild sounds like it’ll be hilarious and with Selick it seems like a dream team. What do you think?
