Seth Rogen and the Lonely Island Say They Planned Film About Music Festival Gone Wrong

The actor and The Lonely Island, the musical comedy trio made up of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, may be prophets, as they have revealed on Twitter they had planned to make a movie whose plot sounds like the real-life outcome of the disastrous Fyre Festival.

"This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with @thelonelyisland about a music festival that goes HORRIBLY WRONG," said Seth, who has starred in and co-written a slew of comedy films about partying, including Superbad, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and This Is the End.

Hundreds of people paid up to $12,000 per ticket to fly to the Bahamas for the botched inaugural event, co-produced by Ja Rule, and cited "chaos" at the scene, with people fighting over food, "refugee camp"-like conditions and difficulties getting flights home. The festival was then postponed.

"For real, thinking about suing #FyreFestival for stealing our idea," read a tweet posted on the Lonely Island's account.
