Connor4Real is riding a tidal wave of fame after the release of his first album. However, that’s all about to change!
The comedy rap group, known as The Lonely Island, are soon to release their second movie, documenting the fall of fictional pop star Connor4Real. We’ll watch as he attempts to regain and keep his fame after the release of a disastrous second album.
I’m a big fan of The Lonely Island‘s comedy hip hop albums, so I’m glad to hear that the film will be accompanied by the release of a soundtrack filled with new tracks from the group.
Title: Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
Release | US: 3rd June ’16 | UK: 26th August ’16 | World: IMDb
Universal Pictures’ Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is headlined by musical digital-shorts superstars Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, collectively known as The Lonely Island. The comedy goes behind the scenes as singer/rapper Conner4Real (Samberg) faces a crisis of popularity after his sophomore album flops, leaving his fans, sycophants and rivals all wondering what to do when he’s no longer the dopest star of all.
The latest comedy from blockbuster producer Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Superbad, Knocked Up) co-stars Sarah Silverman, Tim Meadows and Maya Rudolph and many of the biggest names in comedy and music in cameo performances. Co-directed by Schaffer and Taccone and written by The Lonely Island trio, Popstar is also produced by Rodney Rothman (producer of Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall; co-writer of 22 Jump Street), as well as Samberg, Schaffer and Taccone.
