A Flight of the Concords movie is in the works

11.29.2011

I'm not sure I'd necessarily put Flight of the Conchords into the "killed too soon" category of TV shows, but I did enjoy it while it lasted, and was sad to see it go.

But now fans might be in luck, as star Bret Mackenzie says a movie is in the works:

"We're gonna try and do a movie. We just need a story. I’m gonna go back to New Zealand tomorrow, maybe film it next week. And then edit it the week after. 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.”

Most of that might seem like a joke, but a movie is a possibility according to director/creator James Bobin, who recently helmed THE MUPPETS.

“Jemaine, Bret and I are constantly in touch. We’re good friends. It’s just a question of our schedule. As everything, these answers are always about schedules. Jemaine’s in Greece, Bret’s in New Zealand and I’m in Los Angeles. I’d love to do it. It’s just a question of what it would be and when we would do it, but I’m sure because that’s what I want to make happen at some point.”

Does this sounds like a good idea? I could see a whole musical production of FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS being pretty awesome. Just make sure Murray and the fan club show up as well.

trailer would reveal anything funny in it

four or five laughs over a 90 minute 10 dollar fee does not excite me at all. there is a reason HBO didnt throw a ton of money at these guys for more seasons

LOVED season one. Sceptical about a movie though. Of course, when I think of Murray, I say bring it . . .

Easily funniest comedy shows ever made. Yes, even better than Arrested Development.
And I first watched it this year (1 month ago actually).
Way too short unfortunately :(
But yeah.
Don't care for any of the songs (those are for all those "i need a joke" people). But just the comedy between the guys, especially with Murray is just beyond words... Band meeting!

I LOVED season one, but you lost me w/ the A.Development comment. And how can you love the show so much but not care for the songs . . . ?

This is Awesome!

I love their show and was bummed out that they ended it far too soon. Yet, it is a show that would work well as a film series. The biggest complaint from Jemaine and Bret was that the schedule was too stressful on them. This way they get three months to make one film instead of three months to make 10 episodes. Great news!

"I'm the mother flippin' rhymenocerous
My beats are fat
And the birds are on my back
And I'm horny, I'm horny..."

I could see this happening

Jemaine and Bret bailed on the show simply because of the insane schedule so I'm sure they'd love to revisit it in a movie form.
