Will Forte Signs Up For Keanu

Whatsapp News

That acclaimed dramatic turn in Nebraska clearly wasn’t enough to Will Forte stray from the comedy path. Following his hit TV show The Last Man Earth (co-created with Phil Lord and Chris Miller) and a recent outing to the Wild West in Adam Sandler’ The Ridiculous Six, he’s joining the double-act Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele for Keanu.

Peter Atencio, who directs Key & Peele’s sketch show and has also worked on The Last Man On Earth, is calling the shots on the story, which involves the comedy duo acting like gangstas to retrieve a stolen kitten. It hasn’t yet been specified why the film is called Keanu, but we’d lay money on that being the kitten’s name. Let’s hope he’s not too sad a Keanu if he’s been kidnapped.

Forte will play a pot dealer obsessed with black culture, although Peele is actually the only black person he knows. Wu-Tang’s Method Man will show up as a legendary lord who buys into Key & Peele’s gangster line. And Gabrielle Union is also aboard as Key’s wife.

Shooting starts this summer in Orleans.
