Andy Samberg reveals new details about the 'top secret' Lonely Island movie

Andy Samberg broke some major Lonely Island news on Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” After much speculation about the upcoming movie from the group, Samberg debuted the official title and poster for the “mockumentary.”

“This one is actually on a much bigger scale, a theatrical-release movie that Judd Apatow is producing,” Samberg said, comparing the movie to the HBO tennis mockumentary he starred in, “7 Days in Hell.”

Previously referred to by the title “Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie,” the film is now known as “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.” The poster features Samberg dressed in all white, jacket hanging off his arms to reveal a white tank top underneath.

“That’s very Bieber-y,” host Jimmy Kimmel commented. Clearly, Lonely Island is spoofing Bieber’s concert films, one of which is titled “Never Say Never.”

“We pitched other names to the studio. I pitched them ‘Gremlins 3,’ and they said no,” Samberg joked.

Samberg explained that he plays a character called Connor4Real. According to previous reports, the plot follows Connor4Real as his life falls apart when his new album bombs. In order to return to his previous level of fame, he convinces his two former boy band mates to reunite. They are played by Samberg’s Lonely Island partners, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.

Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows, and Imogen Poots are also in the film, which hits theatres on June 3.
