“We in the market right now for, like, a gangster pet.”

Directed by Peter Atencio (Key & Peele, The Last Man on Earth), Keanu is the age-old story of two friends who pose as ruthless gangbangers to retrieve a stolen kitten named Keanu, which – as we all know – is Hawaiian for “cool breeze over the mountains.”

Jordan Peele stars as Rell, a soft-spoken stoner whose life is forever changed when the most precious of kittens shows up at his doorstep. A graphic artist, Rell makes little Keanu the subject of his next artistic endeavor: a calendar where the kitten plays assorted characters from iconic movies like The Shining, Heat, and New Jack City. But when Cheddar (Method Man), the leader of the notorious 17th Street Blips, steals the cat, Rell and his straight-laced cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) are forced into action.

20th Century Fox has hired Randi Mayem Singer to write a script for Big Momma’s House 3, a new installment in the franchise which started off in 2000 with Big Momma’s House. The movie starred Martin Lawrence, Paul Giamatti, Nia Long, and Terrence Howard, and it followed an FBI agent (Lawrence) who dresses up as large older lady who is lovingly known as Big Momma and integrates himself into her world in order to catch a bank robber who has escaped from prison. The 2006 sequel saw the clever disguise put back into action as Big Momma became a nanny at a residence that housed a murder suspect.
