Can we have your attention, please? A Lonely Island feature film is actually getting made, and rest assured it’s going to be epic.
According to the entertainment publication Variety, Universal Pictures has greenlighted a motion picture about the comedy music trio comprised of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – you know, the guys (and ‘SNL’ favorites) that bestowed on us such musical masterpieces as ‘D- in a Box,’ ‘I’m on a Boat,’ ‘Like a Boss,’ and ‘Motherlover.’ Schaffer and Taccone are set to direct, while Judd Apatow will produce the film.
Although there’s no word yet on if any special guests – like Lonely Island favorites Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, T-Pain and more – will make appearances in the movie, there’s no doubt it’s going to be over the top and ridiculously funny, especially with Apatow (‘Knocked Up,’ ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin,’ ‘Bridesmaids’) producing. This is one film we actually don’t mind paying to see!
