The project was first teased back in 2017
Seth Rogan and The Lonely Island are still on track to make their spoof Fyre Festival film, after teasing the project in 2017.
The tweets came after the events of Billy MacFarland and Ja Rule’s ill-fated event, which was postponed after guests arrived to find the festival site unfinished and under-prepared.
News of the project has been quiet since then but now The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone has assured fans the project is still going ahead.
“I don’t want to divulge all the details but we’re figuring it out right now,” he told The Daily Beast.
Taccone added that the’s a big fan of the Fyre Festival Netflix documentary and says that the project will be similar to The Lonely Island’s 2016 spoof feature, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
“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,” he continued.
In other Fyre Festival news, the staff who lost their life savings due to its fraudulent organisers have received tens of thousands of pounds via a GoFundMe page.
As shown in last month’s Netflix documentary, Bahamian restaurant worker Maryann Rolle said that she lost $50,000 (£39,000) of her life savings – with her team working tirelessly to prepare 1,000 meals per day for festival staff. Rolle, who owns Exuma Point Bar and Grill, was left with an unpaid workforce after the festival collapsed in April 2017.
Just days after the documentary’s release, a GoFundMe page set up for Rolle. At the time of writing, the page has raised over $220,000.
