Lonely Island Group Plan Apatow Musical

The trio behind The Lonely Island group – Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer – have begun production on an untitled musical feature for Universal Pictures.

The story makes fun of music documentaries of recent years like Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” and Katy Perry’s “Part of Me”. The story follows a rapper whose latest album bombs and he must do the unthinkable: a reunion concert with his former boy band.

Schaffer and Taccone are directing and all three will star in the project which Judd Apatow is producing. Rodney Rothman and the trio will also produce and shooting is now underway in Los Angeles.
