It’s been a great year for Key & Peele. Not only have Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele had their show picked up for a fourth season by Comedy Central, but now reports are coming in that the duo have inked a movie deal with Judd Apatow. The Universal Pictures film will be written by Key, Peele, and Apatow. Details about the film are scarce, bute he told Deadline that “I love these guys because they are riotously, make-you-sick-because-you-can’t-stop-laughing funny. I think Key and Peele are capable of making the movie that American desperately needs right now.”
This isn’t the first time Apatow has decided to work with comics that have shows on Comedy Central. He recently made a deal with Amy Schumer to write a film with her. Apataow will produce the film for Apatow Productions and Key and Peele will serve as executive producers.
