by Jordan McGuire on June 10, 2015


Gabrielle Union is enjoying a fruitful summer. She currently stars in the BET series Being Mary Jane, recently joined the Jamie Foxx thriller Sleepless Night and will jump on the comedy project by Key & Peele, Keanu. That film is currently in pre-production in New Orleans.

Union will join Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Will Forte. The Bring It On star will play the wife of Keegan-Michael Key. Her character pushes her pushover husband to assert himself both with his career and his marriage.

New Orleans-shot Keanu is directed by Key & Peele helmer Peter Atencio. The comedy follows two friends who go all Malibu’s Most Wanted and act like gangsters to reclaim their stolen kitten Keanu. Key & Peele will play best friends and Will Forte will play their dopey drug dealer. Gabrielle Union will be in New Orleans this summer to film Keanu. Then the actress will travel to Atlanta and Las Vegas to film Sleepless Night.
