Please Don’t Destroy – the comedy trio consisting of Ben Marshall, Martin Herlihy, and John Higgins – are set to make their big-screen debut in an adventure-comedy feature for Judd Apatow and Universal.

The comedians, who rose to fame with their pre-recorded sketches throughout Season 47 of “Saturday Night Live”, will write and star in the untitled film about three friends who live and work together. Finding themselves in a rut, they set off for the adventure of a lifetime when they hear a rumor that gold is buried in a nearby mountain.

Paul Briganti, an “SNL” segment director who has also helmed episodes of “Chad,” “At Home With Amy Sedaris” and “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” has been tapped to direct. Alongside Apatow for Apatow Productions, Jimmy Miller (“Bad Teacher,” “Get Smart”) will produce for Mosaic.
