The long-awaited Lonely Island movie now has a ludicrously funny new title and an equally ludicrous poster. Andy Samberg, during a very Samberg-esque interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday, revealed the latest developments regarding the movie formerly known as simply Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie.
"This one is actually on a much bigger scale," Samberg told Kimmel, comparing the production to his delightful tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell. "This is a full-on theatrical release movie that Judd Apatow is producing." Following that declaration of seriousness, Samberg then gifted Mother Earth with this beauty:
For those theorizing that Samberg and company (i.e. fellow Lonely Islanders Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) are simply Joaquin Phoenixing everyone with an elaborately meta performance piece, dude totally hears you and has some words of encouragement. "This is a real movie," Samberg professed confidently.
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping will also feature a heavy helping of comedy assists from fellow titans of the genre from Saturday Night Live and beyond. According to Collider, confirmed appearances include Tim Meadows, Mike Birbiglia, Sarah Silverman, and Maya Rudolph.
Sadly, the film is clearly not a full-length interpolation of this classic Lonely Island short:
Let's make that happen as soon as humanly possible, guys.
