The Lonely Island’s Top Secret Movie Now Has a Title and a ‘Purpose’
This all seems too familiar.
Andy Samberg stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to unveil the poster and title of The Lonely Island’s top secret musical mockumentary, produced by Judd Apatow, that’s due out in June. It’s called Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, and Samberg’s character calls to mind one infamous quitter with a similar penchant for white trousers.
The comedy group’s film will follow the journey of a renegade rapper who returns to the roots of his old boy band after his solo album is a flop. “My character’s name is Connor 4 Real — with a four in the middle, naturally,” says Samberg. “We pitched other names to the studio. Like I pitched them Gremlins 3 and they said no, and I was like, alright, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.”
This piece of Bieber-inspired cinema hits theaters on June 3. Watch the poster unveiling below.
