After years of producing esteemed music videos like "Dick in a Box" and "I Just Had Sex," The Lonely Island and Andy Samberg are teaming up to take their musical talents to the silver screen. 

The former SNL cast member has been collaborating with his fellow Lonely Island co-stars Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone on a film project that—up until last night—had not been titled. Fortunately for all of us on our couches at home, the comedian decided Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show was the perfect place to finally unveil the film's gleaming first poster. 

Behold! Doing his best Backstreet Boy impersonation, Samberg is clad in white cargo pants, a matching tank top, a white jacket, gold necklaces and flashy shades while striking his best "I Want It That Way" wind-in-hair pose. Somebody get this guy a record deal. 

The look is a nod to the film's new name—Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Due in theaters on June 3, the picture will star Apatow along with Maya Rudolphand Sarah Silverman

With Judd Apatow—you know, the man who produced Trainwreck, Knocked Up and Bridesmaids—at the helm as a producer, the flick is sure to be a serious sensation. 

As for the plot, there's not much to know at this time that can't already be understood from the poster. Pop/rap superstar Connor4Real falls into a downward spiral after his second album flops. Will he reunite with his former boy band? 

We'll just have to sit tight for another four months to find out.
