Judd Apatow is Producing a Lonely Island Movie
By Marissa G. Muller
The Lonely Island are reportedly getting the Hollywood treatment at the hands of Judd Apatow, the writer-director behind Superbad, Knocked Up, and The The 40-Year Old Virgin.
The comedic rap group and Apatow are reportedly working together on a feature-length film about “the world of music,” according to Variety.
Historically, only a small percentage of musicians have made a successful transition into film – among them Madonna, Puff Daddy and Eminem – but the Lonely Island already have plenty of acting experience under their belt.
Frontman Andy Samberg was a Saturday Night Live cast member for seven years, currently stars on the FOX sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine and has appeared in handful of movies including Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Celeste and Jesse Forever.
