The Lonely Island might have been huge news about four or five years, but they've been pretty dormant since then.
Why's that? Well, for one thing, Andy Samberg went on off and did the surprisingly decent Brooklyn Nine-Nine TV series with Terry Crews and Chelsea Peretti. That show is still ongoing. Akiva Schaffer, meanwhile, went off and attempted the whole directing thing. It didn't really go all that well, as he directed the 2012 comedy misfire The Watch. Jorma Taccone, on the other hand, directed the actually pretty-good MacGruber with Will Forte and starred in the absolutely bonkers Kung Fury as Adolf Hitler.
In other words, they've been busy doing their own things. Now, however, the Lonely Island is reuniting of a sort for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Andy Samberg is a failed rap artist whose first album bombs spectacularly, leaving him to reunite his old boyband of Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.
Already, DJ Khaled is expected to turn up so we can expect Zoolander levels of cameo throughout. Here's the first poster.
