The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone confirms band’s Fyre spoof with Seth Rogen is still happeningThe Lonely Item

“This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with @thelonelyisland about a music festival that goes HORRIBLY WRONG,” tweeted Seth Rogen shortly after the Fyre chaos unfolded across social media. Nearly two years later, The Lonely Island‘s Jorma Taccone confirmed in an interview with The Daily Beast that the film is still being made, and will officially center around the failed festival. The project will likely take on the satirical angle taken in Popstar: Never Stop Stopping.

“I don’t want to divulge all the details but we’re figuring it out right now. You’ve seen the docs, right? It’s crazy. This is something that Akiva and Seth cooked up, and we’re figuring it all out right now,” divulged Taccone, who’s seen the Netflix documentary three times according to The Daily Beast. Surely, their take on the Fyre disaster is sure to be a hit.
