One of music’s most hilarious duos (or, if you prefer, one of comedy’s most musical teams), Flight of the Conchords are reportedly getting their own feature film. Member Jemaine Clement confirmed in a new interview that he and Bret McKenzie are indeed working on a big-screen rendition of their brilliant HBO series.
The news came during and exchange between Clement and Indiewire–an interview that divulged not only is a movie being sketched out, but a new schedule of live tour dates may be confirmed before the end of the year.
Speaking on the film idea specifically, Clement noted “We have actually started writing one. But who knows if it will ever be made, we’ve written some notes for some different film ideas. We’re not down to the stage where we’re going, ‘The film is going to be like this,’ it could be this, this, this, this, this.”
Fans of Flight of the Conchords will readily recall that the New Zealand-born and bred duo released two albums and two seasons of television during their run with HBO. Multiple Emmy award nominations, along a 2008 Grammy for best comedy album are already sitting prominently on their resume. Here’s hoping that they bring their business time to Hollywood for a full-fledged cinema project.
