Adam Samberg and his comedy group, The Lonely Island, are targeting a huge popstar for their first feature film. And brilliantly I might add. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping looks hilarious and appears to be a must-see movie this summer.
In the mockumentary, Samberg plays a singer/rapper named Conner4Real, obviously based on Justin Bieber and his 2011 concert film, Never Say Never. He even names his fans, the Connfidants. Just like The Biebs, Connor faces a crisis of popularity after an album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.
The Judd Apatow-directed film boasts a bunch of cameos including Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, Simon Cowell, Usher, Pink, Seal, Snoop Dogg and a whack of Saturday Night Live alums. Question is, will Justin be a good sport and make a surprise appearance in the film? Fingers crossed.
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping arrives in theaters on June 3. Check out the hilarious trailer below.
