Just one sentence, and suddenly there’s a feature film in the pipeline? Maybe…. maybe not.
Flight of the Conchords‘ Bret McKenzie, who appears in the new Muppets movie, was asked in an interview about a possible Conchords feature.
“We’re gonna try and do a movie,” he told the Hollywood Reporter. “We just need a story.”
And with that suddenly we have stories emerging left, right and centre that the show is headed for the big screen.
Would I love to see a Conchords feature? Sure. Would I pay good money for it at the box office? Hmm -maybe if it was Tight-A*se Tuesday….
They would definitely have enough of a following in the US for an indie flick, but I’m not calling Gold Class just yet.
“I’m gonna go back to New Zealand tomorrow, maybe film it next week. And then edit it the week after,” McKenzie joked. “I don’t know how familiar you are with movies, but there’s a lot of behind the scenes stuff that could take one or two weeks. Probably in about a month we’ll have a premiere.”
