Seth Rogen and The Lonely Island have been working together on a film that has now been retroactively ripped from the internet headlines, apparently, courtesy of this weekend’s disastrous Fyre Fest. Per The Hollywood Reporter, both Rogen and the comedy musical group tweeted out last night that they’ve been working for a while on a movie about a music festival that goes rapidly, horribly wrong, with The Lonely Island guys faux-accusing Fyre Fest of stealing their idea.


It’s not clear how far along the writers are with their project, or how much they’ll have to reevaluate their definition of “HORRIBLY WRONG” in light of the Fyre Fest fiasco. Co-founder Billy McFarland has issued a wide-ranging apology—and a somewhat delusional-sounding promise that he and Ja Rule will do better “next year”—to attendees, who spent a minimum of $1,000 to get trapped in an unplanned camping trip on an island in the Bahamas while the rest of the internet pointed and laughed.
