Are you a fan of SNL? What about the lovely musical group, The Lonely Island? If so, we have some pretty exciting news for you. Judd Apatow just announced on his Twitter account that production on the first film made by the trio has officially started.
The producer shared the news on his Twitter account, revealing the “Top Secret” movie poster you see below..
The Lonely Island group consists of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer. They actually formed the group back in 2000 in California. Five years later, they were hired by Saturday Night Live, and were able to produce hits like “Jizz in My Pants” and “I’m on a Boat“.
So, what the heck is this movie going to be about? We’re not exactly sure. We know the film is being co-directed by Schaffer and Taccone, and we know Sarah Silverman has joined the project. She will be playing a “sharp and sarcastic” publicist who works with the character being played by Samberg.
“Not to be hyperbolic, but we are seriously zazzed about this movie.” The band said in a statement. Apatow released his own statement, revealing how excited he is…
“I have begged these fine gentlemen to allow me to produce one of their films since day one, and finally they decided my whining needed to come to an end.”
Universal will be distributing the untitled film. No release date has been announced, but we’re assuming the movie will hit theaters in 2016.
