Lonely Island Movie

Universal has scheduled its untitled Lonely Island movie, starring Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, for June 3.

The comedy-musical project is co-directed by Schaffer and Taccone with Judd Apatow on board to produce with Rodney Rothman as well as Samberg, Taccone and Schaffer.

The group worked from 2005 to 2011 on “Saturday Night Live,” when Samberg was a cast member and Taccone and Schaffer were writers. They are best known for producing musicvideos “Lazy Sunday,” “Dick in a Box,” “Jizz in My Pants,” “Like a Boss” and “I’m on a Boat.”

The Lonely Island also released the 2009 album “Incredibad” and 2011’s “Turtleneck & Chain,” with songs from “SNL” such as “I Just Had Sex” featuring Akon, “The Creep” featuring Nicki Minaj and “Jack Sparrow” featuring Michael Bolton.

Apatow has been a prolific producer of comedies for Universal with “Knocked Up,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Bridesmaids,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Get Him to the Greek,” “This Is 40,” “Funny People” and the upcoming “Trainwreck.”

The Lonely Island movie is the third title set for June 3 following Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2” and Warner’s drama “Me Before You,” starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin.
