Henry Selick, director of Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas, is developing a a stop motion animated feature with comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, Variety reported exclusively last week.
Based on an original idea by Selick, Wendell and Wild sounds like your standard dark stop motion fare, with demons and goths in the starring roles. Key and Peele will voice two demon brothers who challenge a demon-fighting nun, Sister Helly, and her teenaged goth assistants Kat and Raoul.
Selick is co-writing Wendell and Wild with Peele, and will direct and produce. No studio is attached to the project yet.
