Fyre Festival was a debacle of epic proportions which already served as inspiration for two documentaries, but that won’t be the last we see of it. Seth Rogen and the members of the Lonely Island are currently working on a movie loosely based on this disastrous musical event.

Fyre Festival was scheduled to take place on the Bahamian island of the Great Exuma back in spring 2017. It was described as a “luxury music festival” by its organizers, who paid famous social media influencers – including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid – to promote it online.

Guests who made their way to the Great Exuma realized they’re victims of fake advertising, as the party in paradise they were promised turned into a total nightmare. Netflix explored this train wreck of a festival in their documentary Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, but a more comical look at this event is coming our way.

Jorma Taccone of the Lonely Island confirmed he’s working on a spoof with his partners Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg. Seth Rogen is also on board, but this promising parody is still in its early stages.  

“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,” said Taccone.
