By now, you’ve probably been exposed to the struggles of attendees that were caught up in Fyre Festival’s plight in The Bahamas, a luxury experience that spiraled into sheer chaos amid unpreparedness. Coincidently, Canadian film-maker Seth Rogen and The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer) have been gearing up to start production on a movie about a music festival that goes awry. These creators took the opportune time to spill the beans on their project, which in theory must bear some similarities to the Lord of the Flies-esque debacle that was Fyre.
“This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with The Lonely Island about a music festival that goes HORRIBLY WRONG,” Rogen tweeted.
A plot of this kind was bound to come together sooner than later. Music festival culture is steeped in mainstream culture more than it ever has, especially in film-centric markets like Vancouver and Los Angeles. It’s undetermined how similar Rogen’s new film plot will intertwine with the likeliness of the overwhelmed the inexperienced organizers of Fyre Festival, but it’s certain to be extremely funny.
