When's the movie?

New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo.

I think it's time to create a place to throw in all the signals (or the lack of them re: Kristen's quote #haha# ) from the Conchords about their movie and wait in anticipation for something to really happen.

#cheer# #pray# #cheer#

Do you think they should bring it [Flight of the Conchords] back?

"I do think it should come back. I think there are more songs to sing and more stories to tell. I got drunk around Jemaine's a few weeks ago and I was like, 'When's the movie?!' I just threw it out there and I got no response. But I'll continue getting drunk with them and see if I can work on those guys."

Does Kristen know the key to Jemaine's heart? #hmm# #cheer# #beer# #jem# #cheer# #stirthepot#

#haha# Go Kristen! #cheer# #cheer# #cheer# #cheer# #cheer#

ADD: Found this from another article... a little more specific. ;)

And for those of you out there who wish that “Flight of the Conchords” could have continued beyond its two seasons, in some form, Schaal feels the same. “I think there's more songs to sing and more stories to tell,” she said. “I just got drunk around Jemaine [Clement] a few weeks ago one night and was like, ‘When's the movie?’ I got the guts to just throw it out there. But I got no response. So, I'll continue to get him drunk, and see if I can lure him to write the script.”

#lol# #evilgrin#

I reiterate: Go Kristen! #cheer# #cheer# #stirthepot# #cheer# #cheer#

If, as he promises, Bret makes a Conchord feature film ere long, I shall angle for a non-speaking part as BIGWIT. ("Bret Is..." etc.)

It's not me who teases you. It's THEM! :P

If nothing happens ( #sadd# ) then at least we have a place where we can say that it could have been a great movie... much greater than some of the movies I've... imagined.

Flight Of The Conchords' Will Return, Their Director Promises
November 23rd, 2011 10:15am EST By: Fred Topel

HBO would have produced more episodes of Flight of the Conchords and the fans certainly would have watched them. But the Conchords themselves decided to stop making the show after only two seasons. You can hear some Conchord-y music in The Muppets, as Bret McKenzie wrote new songs for the film. TV series director James Bobin also directed the Muppets movie, and he assured fans that McKenzie and Jemaine Clement will return. Not on a series, but maybe a special or a movie or something.

“I’m sure,” Bobin said. “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 don’t know what it’ll be. I would love to do something else with them because they are good friend and we had a lot of fun making that show. 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.”

The TV series just became too hard to maintain. They were not only writing the music, but also writing the scripts and starring in the show.

“It just got a bit much for us because we were all three of us doing all the jobs basically,” Bobin explained. “I ran it like an English show where it wasn’t a huge team of writers. It wasn’t a lot of production people. It was just me directing it and writing it, them writing the songs and being in it. After a while we just couldn’t do it ourselves, couldn’t maintain it. And I didn’t want to hand it over to other people in case it got diluted. I’d rather people remember it for being great and stop doing it than have it fall to pieces in others’ hands. HBO were very nice about it. They said, ‘We’d love you to do more but we understand.’ Which is a very rare thing.”

Hey, Flight of the Conchords can reward themselves with some time off. I’ll give ‘em that. I just want more music. Albums or concerts will be fine.

“I’m sure you’ll get that,” Bobin said. “There is no doubt. Those guys love music so they will be writing song together I’m sure.”

Controversial opinion! :o

Why a Flight of the Conchords Movie Would Be Better than Arrested Development

​Since Arrested Development went off the air in 2006, the hearts of fans have leapt with every new rumor that a comeback might happen. Needless to say, it was big news when co-creator and executive producer Michael Hurwitz officially announced a 10-episode and movie reboot slated for 2013.

But another millennial favorite, Flight of the Conchords, is also whispered to be making a return. During promotions for The Muppets, for which he wrote music, Bret McKenzie hinted that a big studio feature might happen--or at least that he would like it to. HBO responded in that gruff corporate way that they currently had no plans for a FofC movie. Hopes dashed, our generation continues to pine, as it is wont to do.

But critically speaking, a Flight of the Conchords movie might seriously outperform an Arrested Development movie quality-wise.

The AD canon is a wonderful thing (though that Charlize Theron story arc could have never been written and the world would be fine). The question is whether picking it back up six years later can maintain that same level of freshness and absurdity.

Michael Cera's nervous but lovable George Michael effectively never left our screens thanks to Super Bad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Youth in Revolt. Will Arnett has never been better than he was as Gob, so a return to that would be fantastic. But Hurwitz has explained that the forthcoming episodes would each focus on a character and what he or she has been up to in the intervening years, culminating in the final movie. Plus, watching the original Arrested Development was like pulling on a string, waiting for the next Never Nude joke or Alopecia repetition. Movies generally have one beginning, middle and end. That doesn't sound like the loopy, not-of-this-world narrative that we know and love and a big, Hollywood finale sounds like the last thing Lucille Bluth was intended to do.

Flight of the Conchords, on the other hand, was made for the big screen. Their career ambitions and searches for love are ideal for a two-hour movie anchored by goofy song and dance numbers. Bret and Jemaine could get a new job, a new fan or even a new bike and as a film, it would still be the show it always was. Hurwitz has been working on the new Arrested Development script for a while and he is a genius, but pardon the skepticism.


I have to be honest, after sitting through the embarrassment that was the Dead Like Me movie, I feel #hmm# about both of them.

Pshh, they're both going to be amazing. I'm going to stick with that until proven otherwise. #happyyes# #cheer#

I'm not going to take 'not optimistic it can be done' for an answer. :P

From an interview with Rhys Darby:

...McKenzie has also hinted at a FOTC feature in interviews.

"Yeah, every couple of years those rumours seem to spark up," says Darby. "It's when one of us gets interviewed, generally, and it only takes a couple of words and all of a sudden it's big news. But all three of us have spoken and we're trying to connect at the moment. Jemaine's just called me actually, and I think next year we will try to start writing. I think making the Muppets movie has sort of inspired Bret to see that it is possible."...

Rhys Darby confirms Flight Of The Conchords film is in the works

Rhys Darby reveals on Nick D's Breakfast that a Flight Of The Conchords film is in the works for next year.

listen

"pen will hit the paper next year" #excited2#

Now I want to hear what Jemaine has to say about this. #cheer#

I remember he mentioned it during the "Rio" promo interviews, but it didn't spread out as crazily as this time. I guess people are getting impatient. #excited#


Conchords movie set to fly

Fans of droll Kiwi comedy yearning for another Flight of the Conchords fix could be in luck, with comedian Rhys Darby saying "pen will hit paper" for a Conchords movie next year.

Rhys Darby, who played the Conchords' awkward manager Murray on their HBO show, has talked about recently catching up with co-stars Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement.

While on the publicity trail for The Muppets movie recently, Conchord Bret McKenzie joked that a movie could be in cinemas soon.

"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."

On radio station George FM this morning, Darby remarked on how such "flippant" comments could take on a life of their own.

"But I can say in all faith that we have connected, recently we've talked, and the boys do want to make one. So it's just a matter of finding time and I think next year pen will hit paper."
