Bret McKenzie hints at Flight of the Conchords movie
Whilst on promotional duties for The Muppets Bret McKenzie hints at a big screen outing for Flight Of The Conchords...
Since the second series of Flight Of The Conchords finished a couple of years ago, it has been Jemaine Clement who has seemingly had the better big screen career. He's picked up roles in the likes of Dinner For Schmucks, Gentlemen Broncos, Rio and the upcoming Men In Black 3.
However, the other half of the Conchords, Bret McKenzie, will appear in a small role in The Hobbit (he also appeared briefly in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King) and has also been promoting his work on The Muppets recently. And now? He's been hinting at the possibility of a Flight Of The Conchords movie.
Specifically, McKenzie stated the following whilst on red carpet duties: “We’re gonna try and do a movie. We just need a story.”
From that brief snippet of information it’s clear that we shouldn’t expect the movie any time soon. Not that the two are likely to be short of work. Clement will probably continue to get offered an array of wacky supporting roles. And there’s a strong chance that McKenzie could be an Academy Award winner in the Best Original Song category next year for The Muppets.
Whilst series two of Conchords didn’t match the overall quality of the first for me, or indeed the radio show, it still had plenty of standout moments. It would certainly be interesting to see how the life of the band has changed given how the finale of series two left the duo...
