Cranking Out A Conchords Film
Bret McKenzie has said he has hopes for a film version of his and Jemaine Clement’s hit television show Flight of the Conchords. “We’re going to try and do a movie,” McKenzie said at The Muppets premiere last week. “We just need a story.” McKenzie and Clement’s HBO series ended in 2009, but the pair maintain a dedicated fan base. And according to McKenzie, 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,” he 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.” McKenzie, 35, was born in Wellington. He is a member of the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra.
