Folk Yeah! Bret McKenzie Hints 'Flight Of The Conchords' Film In Works

Bret McKenzie, one half of New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo Flight of the Conchords, has hinted that a big-screen spin-off of the HBO show is a possibility.

During press calls for the new Muppets movie, for which he served as music supervisor for the film, McKenzie said: “We’re gonna try and do a movie. We just need a story.”

However, an official spokesperson for HBO has told NME: "There are no plans for a Flight Of The Conchords movie".

Bret seems to be thinking different to HBO as he also recently told New York Magazine:
"We definitely want to make a Conchords film. Working on this big studio feature makes me excited about a large-scale Conchords movie with big musical numbers."
