Plot details have not been disclosed, but the movie is described as an action comedy.

Samberg, Ali Bell, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone will serve as producers for The Lonely Island’s production company Party Over Here. Also producing are Bettinelli-Olpin, Gillett, Radio Silence’s Chad Villella and Silk Mass’ Jon Silk.

Andrew Lanham is writing the script and will executive produce. Lanham, who previously worked on the scripts for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Just Mercy, is repped by UTA, Kaplan Perrone and Ziffren Brittenham.

After appearing in the recent Hulu release Self Reliance, Samberg can be seen later this year alongside Kate Winslet and Josh O’Connor in Lee, a biopic of World War II photographer Lee Miller. Samberg recently voiced roles in the animated features Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers.

Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett directed Abigail, the vampire flick that Universal released last month, after previously helming the two most recent Scream films and 2019’s Ready or Not.

During a conversation with THR ahead of the release of Abigail, Gillett explained that they weren’t looking to waste any time before landing their next project.

“We like to not just wait around,” he said at the time. “I think it is about how the wind is blowing for us creatively and what is interesting to us in the moment. So who knows what follows Abigail, but we’re going to be looking real soon.”

Deadline was first to report the news of Amazon MGM Studios landing the new package.
