Conchords to fly again?

McKenzie reveals big-screen plans

Musical comedy duo Flight Of The Conchords are planning a movie version of their cult TV hit.

Bret McKenzie said he and co-star Jemaine Clement had big-screen ambitions for the big screen – but they needed to come up with a script.

He made the comment in an interview to promote The Muppet movie, to which he contributed several songs.

When a journalist from the Hollywood Reporter asked him if he had any plans for a Flight Of The Conchords movie, McKenzie said: ‘Yeah, we’re going to do a movie. We just need a story – so if you know anyone who has any story ideas...’

When asked when it might come out, he said that ‘movies take a long time to make’ – so joked that it could take him up to a month from now to film and edit it.

The New Zealand duo ended their HBO series in 2009 after two seasons, as they were finding it difficult to come up with enough new material.
