Andy Samberg wanted Sarah in the worst way when he played the character Troy Bulletin-Board in the “Smellin’ of Troy” episode of The Sarah Silverman Program (S3:Ep5). And now he’s got her in the best way: as a co-star in his first Lonely Island movie.  The Hollywood Reporter broke the story of Sarah’s signing on to what producer Judd Apatow is calling, Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie. Apatow tweeted that production began May 13.

LonelyIslandPoster1JAccording to Slashfilm.com, Samberg met the other two members of the parody music group, The Lonely Island, — Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone — all the way back in junior high school.  They joined Saturday Night Live in 2005, where they created the infamous “Dick in a Box” number (with Justin Timberlake), as well as numerous other pieces of hilarity.  The movie will be directed by Schaffer and Taccone.

THR describes the movie as being about “a rapper (Samberg) whose latest album bombs and he must do the unthinkable: a reunion concert with his former boy band.” Sarah will play “the rapper’s sharp and sarcastic publicist who has to suffer many indignities.”

The new poster for Ashby includes two different pics of Sarah. The film makes its world premiere in April at the TriBeCa Film Festival in New York City.  Here’s how the festival website describes the movie:

Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. Peppered with upbeat music and standout performances, Ashby is a spirited, self-referential update on Harold and Maude for a John Wick generation. With Emma Roberts and Sarah Silverman.
