The buddies and comedy partners are back together for a movie from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' director Henry Selick.

The awesome comedy duo of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will work together once again in an upcoming animated feature for Netflix.

Wendell And Wild will see the pair voice a set of 'demonic brothers'. Henry Selick, the man behind classics like The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline, will direct and co-write alongside Peele and Clay McLeod Chapman. Like Selick's previous work, the movie will be stop-motion in style.

Since they wrapped up their successful Comedy Central sketch show Key & Peele in 2015 after five seasons, both men have seen huge new levels of success with Peele writing and directing the Oscar-winning smash-hit Get Out and Key starring in Netflix's Friends From College and on Broadway in Steve Martin's play Meteor Shower alongside Amy Schumer.

There is currently no release date for Wendell And Wild but expect further announcements as production kicks off in the coming months.
