The very popular sketch duo Key & Peele may be getting the feature film treatment in the near future thanks to the current comedy godfather Judd Apatow. Former MADtv castmembers Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele first debuted their sketch comedy series Key & Peele on Comedy Central in January 2012, and since then have enjoyed wider success and notoriety as the show has taken off with audiences. One of its fans appears to be Judd Apatow, as Deadline reports that he will produce an untitled feature comedy vehicle for the duo that will be written by Key and Peele for Universal Pictures. Hit the jump for more.

“I love these guys because they are riotously, make you sick because you can’t stop laughing, funny. I think Key and Peele are capable of making the movie that America desperately needs right now.”
