The Lonely Island Bros Have Had Their New Judd Apatow Movie Greenlit

Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone are undoubtedly on to a winning formula. One in which they create comical content, release it unto the world and get money in exchange.

Anyone who has seen Hot Rod – one of the greatest triumphs in film from, at the very least, the last century – will know to look forward to whatever the threesome co-write and feature in. Universal Pictures obviously recognised this and are fronting the film. As Variety reports: “The studio has acquired a pitch from the trio, which will star in and produce the comedy set in the world of music.”

Judd Apatow will produce, Jorma and Akiva will co-direct and Andy will presumably star.

And that is how it’s done.
