Best known for their appearences on US comedy variety show Saturday Night Live, the musical trio have released three studio albums featuring scores of celebrity guests and countless hilarious 'video shorts'.

Lonely Island
The band will no doubt be getting up to crazy hijinks, but what will the soundtrack be like?

Now the band, consisting of childhood friends Andy SambergJorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, are going to star in and produce a film for Universal Studios. Veteren comedy director/producer Judd Apatow will also produce, whilst Taccone and Schaffer will co-direct. 

It's hard to imagine what on earth these quirky comics will come up with considering they are the brains behind hits such as 'I'm on a Boat' and 'The Creep'. On their albums they worked with musicians ranging from Michael Bolton and Carlos Santana to Pharrell and Justin Timberlake, so we can probably expect some of their celebrity friends to make appearences too.

This film also won't be the first appearence onscreen for the boys- they also appeared in 2007's Hot Rod (in which Samberg played the lead role) and 2012's The Watch

Whilst Samberg has concentrated on acting, starring in TV series 'Brooklyn 99' for which he recently won a Golden Globe, his bandmates have taken a more behind the scenes role. Taccone directed 2010's 'Saturday Night Live' spin-off MacGruber, whilst Schaffer directed Hot Rod and The Watch.
