It’s been a while since we heard anything from Flight of the Conchords following the 2009 announcement that the duo’s HBO series would not be returning for a third season. But it appears Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie aren’t ready to give up on their most famous creation yet, as rumors of a Conchords movie have surfaced.
McKenzie recently contributed a couple of songs to the new Muppets movie, and during a red carpet press interview to promote the film he dropped a hint that he may be about to return to more familiar territory. “We’re going to try and do a movie,” he said. “We just need a story.”
The director of the Muppets movie is James Bobin, who co-created Flight of the Conchords, which explains how McKenzie got involved in such an unusual (for him) project. But don’t hold your breath for a Conchords movie yet—McKenzie’s next screen appearance is likely to be in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Hobbit, where he will play an elf. “It looks incredible,” he said of the production. “I’ve never seen anything so massive.” [via Vulture]
