Once upon a time, Justin Bieber told us to Never Say Never. Now The Lonely Island—the SNL-bred musical-comedy trio featuring Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone—have their own entry into the phrase canon. Their new feature film, due June 3, is called Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.

Check out the Biebsian poster:

The plot for Never Stop Never Stopping revolves around Samberg's Connor4Real, a rapper-slash-singer whose second album bombs, forcing him to reunite the boy band from whence he came. Fellow SNL grad Tim Meadows co-stars. Fingers crossed we get appearances from "YOLO" kings Kendrick Lamar and Adam Levine, "Dick in a Box" star Justin Timberlake and, most importantly of all, "I'm on a Boat" hero T-Pain.

The Lonely Island movie is written by its three members and directed by Schaffer and Taccone, with Judd Apatow producing. Taccone has previously directed MacGruber and episodes of Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Schaffer took the helm on Hot Rod and The Watch.
