Bret McKenzie wants a 'Flight of the Conchords' movie

According to the Hollywood Reporter, one-half of the comedy duo behind “Flight of the Conchords” has said the team is angling to turn the series into a film.

"We're going to try and do a movie," said Bret McKenzie at “The Muppets” premiere last week (the actor/musician worked on the soundtrack). "We just need a story."

McKenzie and Jermaine Clement’s HBO series ended in 2009, but the pair maintain a dedicated fan base.

And according to the actor, cranking out a “Conchords” movie would take no time at all.

“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.”

But he is a bit busy at the moment, since he has a small role - as elf Lindir - in fellow Kiwi Peter Jackon’s “The Hobbit.”

“It’s amazing. Peter Jackson is just, he’s rolling, he’s got his flow on,” McKenzie told THR of the New Zealand set. “It looks incredible. I’ve never seen anything so massive.”
