Approaching the release of new comedy Keanu, Warner Bros. has released the first look image of Key And Peele in action in the upcoming movie. In the first still from the film, Jordan and Keegan-Michael are seen tied up as a small kitten circles around the duo. Things definitely don’t look for the two as they appear to be caught up in a kidnapping.
Starring Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key — the Comedy Central sketch sensations behind the recently ended Key & Peele — the film follows two “blerds” (read: black nerds) who impersonate gangstas and infiltrate a drug cartel to rescue a stolen cat (named Keanu). “This entire movie was basically the most expensive adorable-kitten video of all time,” jokes Peele, who wrote Keanu with Key & Peele alum Alex Rubens. “Overall it’s meant to satirize how pop culture paints masculinity and what it means to be African-American — and how many of us don’t fit into the mold expected of us.” –Chris Lee
Tiffany Haddish, Nia Long, Method Man, and more star in Keanu, which has a release date set for this coming April 29.
