The Lonely Island Unveil Movie Poster and Title On Jimmy Kimmel

The previously untitled full length project from The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) has just been given a full title and movie poster. With an undeniable Justin Bieber-meets-Jaden-Smith vibe to it.

Full disclosure: I actually had no idea Smith featured on Bieber’s Never Say Never until I looked up their names together, I just thought it sounded like a mantra they might both enjoy. Happy coincidence? Still not sure, it’s a super cringe song, and I love the Biebs. I digress. Andy Samberg announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live overnight that the Judd Apatow and Rodney Rothman produced film is titled Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Written by The Lonely Island trio, the hilariously topical movie follows a singer-slash-rapper, Conner4Real (played by Samberg and pictured on the poster) after releasing his failure of a sophomore album and eventually returning to his former boyband.

Also set to star Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows and Maya RudolphPopstar… is promising cameos from “many of the biggest names in comedy and music.” It is one of two upcoming projects the trio are said to be working on. The second is an upcoming Fox sketch series titled Party Over Here. Both projects come following some time off from the Island, with each member doing their own, wonderful thing. Samberg has been starring as Jake Peralta in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the season one finale of which Schaffer directed while Taccone appeared in the final season of Parks and Recreation and was also an executive producer of the wonderful film Diary Of A Teenage Girl, which came out last year. 

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is out June 3rd, and can someone please get me a print of that poster big enough to take up an entire wall? Thanks.
