Andy Samberg appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday to give a scoop about the Lonely Island movie: along with a June 3 date of opening, he announced the title. Here’s digitalspy’s article about the news.
Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – the team behind SNL’s beloved Digital Shorts – are teaming up with mega-producer Judd Apatow for a musical comedy called Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Samberg dropped in to unveil a snazzy promo poster and give the first real scoop on the movie.
“This is a full-on theatrical released movie that Judd Apatow is producing,” he revealed. “It is THE Lonely Island movie.”
Samberg later explained: “My character’s name is Conor 4real, with a 4 in the middle naturally… We pitched other names to the studio. Like, I pitched them Gremlins 3, and they said no. Alright, [it’s] Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.”
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, of course, stars all three members of the Lonely Island, along with Sarah Silverman and That Awkward Moment’s breakout star Imogen Poots.
Universal Pictures releases the comedy on June 3 in US cinemas.
