    Good news, fans of The Lonely Island, Andy Samberg and his pals have another gift for you—and no, it's isn't a you-know-what in a box.

    The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and Saturday Night Live alum and his musical comedy trio, known for popular "SNL Digital Shorts," have teamed up with none other than Judd Apatow to produce a movie for Universal Pictures.

    Apatow, who produced the hit comedy films Bridesmaids and Knocked Up (the latter of which he also directed), confirmed the news on his Twitter late on Thursday. Variety reported that the still-untitled movie will be set in the world of music.

    Samberg and fellow Lonely Island members Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone (who played Booth Jonathan on HBO's Girls, by the way) will star in and co-produce the film, Variety reported, adding that the latter two will also co-direct it. Taccone had previously helmed and co-written the 2010 comedy film MacGruber.

    The group is known for the popular "SNL Digital Shorts" such as the music videos "Lazy Sunday" and the R-rated "D--k in a Box," which were released when Samberg starred on SNL, between 2005 and 2012. The clips were among the NBC show's most popular online videos.
