Seth Rogen and The Lonely Island are nonetheless creating their Fyre Competition film. Whereas Rogen has quite a few initiatives presently in varied levels of improvement, the favored comic hasn’t written or directed a function movie since 2016’s Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. By no means one to again down from potential controversy or taking a jab at popular culture, Rogen appears to get pleasure from holding followers guessing over what problem he’ll tackle subsequent – or on this case, when he’ll take it on.
Again in 2017, a few tweets from Rogen and comedy troupe The Lonely Island (consisting of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) revealed that the 2 camps have been within the course of of making a catastrophe comedy based mostly on the idea of a music competition that goes horribly unsuitable. This data was supplied simply after the now notorious Fyre Competition introduced shocked concertgoers to a nightmare occasion within the Caribbean that was meant to be the last word music competition social gathering. Since that point, two documentary movies have been launched in regards to the Fyre Competition debacle, however Rogen and The Lonely Island’s movie has but to materialize, leaving followers of the comedians to marvel what’s occurring.

Fortunately, that undertaking remains to be alive and effectively, based on Lonely Island-er Jorma Taccone. In a current interview with The Each day Beast, Taccone revealed that though he’s presently wrapped up in making an attempt to get a MacGruber TV collection off the bottom, the as-of-now untitled Fyre Competition spoof movie is certainly being developed. Based on Taccone, the undertaking is the brainchild of Schaffer and Rogen and other than having watched the Netflix documentary Fyre 3 times, Taccone insists that the undertaking is being labored on:
“Oh yeah. I don’t wish to expose all the main points however we’re figuring it out proper now. You’ve seen the docs, proper? It’s loopy. That is one thing that Akiva and Seth cooked up, and we’re figuring all of it out proper now.”
As if the disastrous Fyre Competition –0organizer Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule’s meant Caribbean island music competition that by no means was – didn’t kick up sufficient consideration and destructive press, the aforementioned documentaries on the topic from Hulu and Netflix have given audiences a model new perception into all the pieces that occurred. It’s troublesome for a lot of to really feel sympathy for individuals who purchased into the lavish extra that was promised on Fyre Cay, which might be why a spoof of such an occasion occurring isn’t prone to ruffle many feathers, not like say, Rogen’s previous efforts like The Interview. And naturally, The Lonely Island crew excel at spoofing lavish extra, having skewered the world of pop music superstardom in 2016’s Popstar: By no means Cease By no means Stopping. Precisely when followers of each Rogen and The Lonely Island may have an opportunity to get their first glimpse of this music competition turned catastrophe joint effort is anybody’s guess, as each camps are balancing very busy schedules.
If anybody goes to make a comedy that mirrors the occasions of the Fyre Competition, there are few comedians on the market with the confirmed monitor file of Rogen. Whereas The Lonely Island have proven themselves to be foolish and snort out loud hilarious multi functional, it’s the inclusion of Rogen that basically offers this undertaking its shine. As soon as thought-about a fixture within the stoner-comedy style, Rogen has proven that he’s grown past that label and is able to taking oddball premises and making them work. With the continuing recognition of the Fyre Competition’s failure seemingly at an all-time excessive, maybe Rogen and The Lonely Island’s movie will arrive simply in time to tug much more laughs out of a subject that refuses to die simply but.
