Flight Of The Conchords Is Coming To The Big Screen

The comedy folk duo's Bret McKenzie confirms plans to develop a feature film, "just need a story" Flight Of The Conchords Is Coming To The Big Screen

Flight Of The Conchords is coming to the big screen.

The New Zealand comedy duo's Bret McKenzie has confirmed that Jemaine Clement and he are developing a feature film that would "bring the band to the big screen," reports Total Film. 

"We're going to try and do a movie. We just need a story."

The band's concept started out as a BBC Radio 2 show, a progenitor for the TV series that ran on HBO from 2007 to 2009. Known for their largely improvised approach - as well as cult-like following due to their live performances - the duo received an Emmy nomination for Best Comedy.

McKenzie is coming off promoting The Muppets, which he wrote a number of songs, including potential Oscar nominee "Life's A Happy Song." The soundtrack also includes a cover of Cee Lo's "F*ck You" and cameos by Dave Grohl, Jack Black, and Selena Gomez.

The Muppets opened last Wednesday in the U.S. with a $24.4 million box-office opening. However, the much-anticipated film, the film Muppets theatrical release in 12 years, was unable to break The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn's hold of number one.

Since the end of The Flight of the Conchords, the duo has been busy. Clement had roles in Despicable MeDinner For SchmucksRio, and Men in Black III. McKenzie's next role will be in Peter Jackson's upcoming blockbuster, The Hobbit. "It looks incredible. I've never seen anything so massive."
