Judd Apatow Is Making a Lonely Island Movie

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Tacome have released three studio albums as The Lonely Island, a musical comedy trio that gained popularity through ‘Saturday Night Live’ skits and digital shorts. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, ’40 Year Old Virgin’ director, Judd Apatow, is producing a feature film project for the three to star in, set in “the music world”.

Information about the film’s plot have not yet been released, however all three will co-produce alongside Apatow and Schaffer and Taccone are slated to co-direct.

The Lonely Island is best known for their extremely popular digital shorts aired on ‘SNL’ that later went viral online including ‘Dick In A Box’ starring Justin Timberlake, ‘Lazy Sunday’ starring Samberg and Chris Parnell, and ‘I’m On a Boat’.

The trio have also found success with comedy features including the Samberg-starring ‘Hot Rod’ in 2007, directed by Schaffer and co-written by all members.

Samberg is currently on the Emmy-award winning sit-com ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’.
