Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg has landed a brand new movie role following the success of last year's Palm Springs.

He's again teaming up with the time loop comedy's writer Andy Siara on the new project, which is described as a sci-fi comedy-drama.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project has landed at Apple Studios, and the aforementioned pair will work with Ben Stiller and Fargo creator Noah Hawley.

Samberg will star and produce, with Siara writing the script and also producing alongside Stiller and Hawley.

Details for the plot are thin on the ground at the moment, but the movie is based on an original idea by BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg – so no doubt this may be one that hits us in the feels.

Samberg's latest big project Palm Springs got rave reviews following its release, racking up an impressive 100% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Fans in the UK will finally be able to watch it on Amazon Prime Video early this year following its US release on Hulu in 2020.

The actor previously admitted he was nervous about doing "legit acting" for Palm Springs, saying: "I'm very comfortable with comedy obviously, but I've got a lot less experience with more dramatic stuff. I would say that was the main difference for me coming into it."

The star added: "That was a big part of why I was so relieved when we got Cristin [Milioti] to do the movie. Because I knew she would be my crutch."

Palm Springs is available on Hulu in the US. The movie will be released in the UK on Amazon Prime Video in 2021.
