Boosh duo confirm movie plans

...and they've an album, too

Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt have confirmed that they are working on a Mighty Boosh film – but refused to be drawn on too many details.

The duo also revealed that they are working on an album to be released next year, quoshing rumours that they are to split

Speaking to the BBC at the premiere of Bunny And The Bull, a film in which they both have cameos, Barratt did drop some hints about their own movie.

He said: ‘We try to do on TV quite magical epic journeys, and we thought if you're doing a film we should really do it in one room, basically just kind of a sitcom, for 90 minutes.

‘So we might do that. We might do exactly what we didn't do on TV.’

Fielding kept shtum about the project, saying: ‘I've got to stop doing that, I've been stung too many times.’

Of rumours they were to split, Barratt added: ‘We're still together. It's like we're twins, we're kind of symbiotically linked.
