Are Key & Peele creating a delirious new horror movie?

Something buried in last week’s LA Weekly profile of producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Ouija) that I wrote about previously caught me attention: comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele (aka Key & Peele) are making a horror movie for Blum called Get Out. “Like comedy, horror has an ability to provoke thought and further the conversation on real social issues in a very powerful way. Get Out takes on the task of exploring race in America, something that hasn’t really been done within the genre since Night of the Living Dead 47 years ago. It’s long overdue,” Peele is quoted as saying.

While I find the prospect of a Key & Peele horror movie intriguing, this has to be a horror-comedy, right? It can’t be a straight horror movie, can it? I mean, the title and basic premise are right out of Eddie Murphy’s Delirious.
