Last year, we reported on Lonely Island’s multi-project deal with Fox, in addition to the announcement of a potential film. Now, the untitled Lonely Island movie has finally been given a release date: June 3, 2016.

The movie will star the famous Lonely Island members, including Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. The film that is to be released has been recognized as a music-based comedy, which will target recent fluffy artists’ documentaries that have been released in the last few years.

The film will center on Samberg as a rapper, whose new album does not resonate with his audience, leaving him with few career options. As a result, he is forced to reconcile with his old boy band and perform a reunion concert.

Lonely Island has attained considerable recognition by producing skewed music videos for Saturday Night Live, including “D**k in a Box” and “Jack Sparrow.”

The new film will be produced by Judd Apatow alongside the Lonely Island members, Rodney Rothman and Morgan Sackett. For shits and gigs, and also cause, T-Pain, revisit "I'm on a Boat" below:
