Judd Apatow will produce Andy Samberg's The Lonely Island movie

08.07.2014

It was only a matter of time but The Lonely Island boys are heading to the big screen! Universal has acquired an untitled comedy project from the Lonely Island trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone. The three will star in the movie (obviously) which is said to take place in the music world. Judd Apatow will produce the film with the trio as well with Schaffer and Taccone co-directing.

There isn’t a lot known about the project at this time so it’s time to speculate and hope for the best. Personally I wouldn’t mind a musical combined with sketches in the vein of THE KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE. Schaffer and Taccone have each directed those lovable SNL Digital Shorts; Schaffer directed the underrated HOT ROD and Taccone directed the more underrated MACGRUBER. Samberg returns to his Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine imminently, so the start of production may have to wait until the spring.

Now let’s head to the boat:

Who invited Steve, that dude is a cunt

Really interested in this, their videos and music is really hilarious. Do an origin story of them making music in high school, to landing writing roles on SNL.

I would love to see these guys in a movie together. HOT ROD and MACGRUBER are both criminally underrated comedies. As long as they can add some of their music (whether original or old songs) then this movie would be amazing!

Well, considering the last 2 Apatow produced

comedies set in the world of music (Walk Hard, Get Him to the Greek) have been arguably the most underrated* comedies of the friggin decade, im totally in on this.



*I'd argue this all day. No one talks about WH and GHttG got wayyyyy too much hate

Samberg is such a genius...

He mocks Comedy Central's Roasts during the Franco roast by in turn putting down homosexuals and not being funny all at the same time. Judd Apatow also sucks. This movie will obviously have a dramatic happy ending.

"Jack Sparrow" song with Michael Bolton amazes me how Michael Bolton can be very funny and sing "snorting mountain of cocaine" in a song. Awesome!
