Key and Peele Partners With Judd Apatow to Develop Movie

Key & Peele are making a movie with Judd Apatow

Suggesting Comedy Central sketch shows are increasingly becoming Judd Apatow’s version of a farm team, the producer has partnered with Key & Peele stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to develop a movie for the duo—a deal that comes not long after Apatow made a similar one with Amy Schumer.

As with that project, the details are being kept totally under wraps, though Apatow did offer some high praise for his new collaborators by telling Deadline, “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 America desperately needs right now.”
