Co-creators Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are getting the band back together, now that it’s been confirmed that the creative pair are working on a Flight of the Conchords movie.
Based on the cult HBO series of the same name, there’s no word on a specific start date for the adaptation, though news of a film version is sure to appease long-time fans of the titular comedy and folk music duo. News comes by way of Indiewire, who sat down with Jemaine Clement about the mockumentary series and its would-be path to the silver screen.
“We have actually started writing one. But who knows if it will ever be made, we’ve written some notes for some different film ideas. We’re not down to the stage where we’re going, ‘The film is going to be like this,’ it could be this, this, this, this, this.'”
Going off of Clement’s comments, it’s worth taking this news with a grain of salt. Flight of the Conchords has flirted with a movie version for years at this point, and though fans of the HBO show would want nothing more than to see the hilariously awkward New Zealanders hit the big screen, it looks like it’ll be some time yet before Clements and McKenzie settle on a script.
Running for only two seasons in 2007 and 2008, Flight of the Conchords was arguably cancelled to soon, and there’s still plenty of potential lurking within the HBO property – road trip? – should the stars align on the potential feature film.
For now, the only thing we can do is wait patiently until the fate of the Flight of the Conchords is decided. What do you think, though? Yay or nay on this potential move adaptation? Let us know in the comments below.
