The first official restricted (as in not safe for work or for kids) trailer has arrived for the comedy movie Keanu starring Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Keanu the kitten. The comedy comes from writers Jordan Peele and Alex Rubens (Key & Peele) and was directed by Peter Atencio (also from Key & Peele). The cast also includes Method Man, Tiffany Haddish, Jason Mitchell, Luis Guzman, Nia Long, and Will Forte. New Line Cinema’s aiming for an April 29, 2016 theatrical release.
Key and Peele play Clarence and Rell, 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.
