Netflix and Hulu both released much-talked about documentaries centered around the disastrous Fyre Festival in the last month.
And some of the biggest names in comedy are already looking to cash in.
Seth Rogen and comedy team The Lonely Island – consisting of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer – have been working on a film about a music festival gone wrong since before the actual Fyre Festival.
On the first weekend of the Bahamian event back in April 2017, the 36-year-old Rogen took to Twitter to write: ‘This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with @thelonelyisland about a music festival that goes HORRIBLY WRONG.’
The comedy trio reiterated those claims as they retweeted him with the message: ‘For real, thinking about suing #FyreFestival for stealing our idea.’
Last month Rogen reminded fans that the project was still in the works as he tweeted a Rolling Stone article about it with the caption: ‘Don’t forget….’
One of the members of The Lonely Island, 41-year-old Jorma Taccone told The Daily Beast that the project is still being worked on and will have a mockumentary feel like their 2016 flick Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
He said: ‘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.’
