The epic film KEANU stars comedians Key & Peele along with Method Man, Nia Long, Luis Guzman, Tiffany Haddish and Will Forte. The movie opens April 29th.
In the movie, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, a.k.a. the hugely popular comedy duo ‘Key & Peele’, star as Clarence and Rell, two cousins who live in the city but are far from streetwise. When Rell’s beloved kitten, Keanu, is catnapped, the hopelessly straight-laced pair must impersonate ruthless killers in order to infiltrate a street gang and retrieve the purloined feline. But the incredibly adorable kitten becomes so coveted that the fight over his custody creates a gang war, forcing our two unwitting heroes to take the law into their own hands.
Peter Atencio (“Key & Peele,” “The Last Man on Earth”) directed the film from a script written by Jordan Peele and Alex Rubens (“Key & Peele,” “Community”).
Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Peter Principato, Paul Young, and Joel Zadak are the producers, with Ben Ormand serving as executive producer.
From New Line Cinema, “Keanu” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
