The musical comedy stylings brought to you by The Lonely Island will soon be appearing on a movie screen near you. Yes that is right, the trio that has delivered viral hits such as, “I’m on a Boat,” “Dick in a Box,” and “Like a Boss.” The comedy group originally gained an audience via their musical comedy sketches on “Saturday Night Live.” After gaining huge success they started to release full albums of their own, where they ended up topping the charts each time. Now Universal is giving them the chance to shine on the big screen.

Group members Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone will have a hand in the writing process and also co-star in the film. Judd Apatow is attached to produce the film, with Schaffer and Taccone co-directing. The movie is currently untitled, but the story-line is set to take place in the music world. The Lonely Island took over late night television and the internet, but can they rap their way to the top of the box office?
