Judd Apatow-Produced Lonely Island Movie Starts Production

They’re getting that diaper money.

We learned in August that The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer) would be making a film produced by Judd Apatow. Today that film starts production. It still doesn’t have a name, though.

But we do have a plot! The film will be a parody of those fluffy music documentaries your kids make you see. There’s a Katy Perry one, a Justin Bieber one, and I think there may have been a One Direction one. Now there’s going to be a fake as shit one.

Specifically, the plot will revolve around a once successful rapper who has to do a reunion concert with his old boyband. That’s a pretty great starting point. You can already see how much promise there is here, and I have faith these guys will exploit it in plenty of fun, R-rated ways.
