Amidst news of the disasterous Fyre Festival, a meant-to-be lavish music festival on a secluded Bahamian island catering to the ultra-rich that ended in a Lord of the Flies-esque disaster of unpreparedness and harsh tropical conditions, funnymen Seth Rogen and The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer) announced on Twitter that they have been working on a film project with a very similar plot.
"This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with @thelonelyisland about a music festival that goes HORRIBLY WRONG," Rogen tweeted.

The Lonely Island, the parody rap group behind 2016's Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and viral SNL digital shorts "Lazy Sunday" and "D--- in a Box", corroborated the news, tweeting, "For real, thinking about suing #FyreFestival for stealing our idea."
