There's been alot of the this stuff bandied about recently but it's no different than what we knew when S2 ended. FOTC haven't said no. HBO wants them. We want them. It's up to them. I can't see it happening for another year at least but you never know.

From Rhys via the NME:


Flight of the Conchords could be back as a movie, a stage show - or not at all, according to one of the cast.

Rhys Darby, who plays the duo's hapless manager Murray Hewitt, told NME.COM that having wrapped up the second series – which was released on DVD this week (August 3) – that the digi-folk duo are pausing before deciding the show's future.

"I'm open to whatever Bret [McKenzie] and Jemaine [Clement] want, it's their baby and I'm just along for the ride. I know they're going to take a year off, but there's already a bit of pressure already from people saying 'How can you end this thing now?,'" explained Darby.

"There's no decision made. There's been orders for another season but I know the guys have a British mentality where you create something, you finish it and move on. We're being pulled different ways. Even if we do go on, there are different options there. Do we do a Christmas special, or a film or even turn it into a stage show and tour the world with it? It's still a full on 'who knows?' scenario!"

The line dividing Murray and Rhys got quite blurry for a moment there. [image]

Rhys: Conchords had too many songs
Rhys Darby thinks Flight Of The Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement may have "signed their own death warrant" by writing three songs per episode.



Rhys Darby thinks Flight Of The Conchords' Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement may have "signed their own death warrant" by writing three songs per episode.

The hit show, which follows Kiwis Bret and Jemaine as they try to make it as musicians in New York, has ground to a halt after its second series.

Rhys, who plays the band's good-natured manager Murray, said he didn't think it was "the end of the end" but that the boys may have exhausted themselves with so much writing.

He said: "The fact they had to pull together 20 new songs (for the second series), that was the pressure. Not that they didn't enjoy it, but just that as a musician, you don't want to be under that strain.

"They started with three songs an episode so maybe they were signing their own death warrant, they should have just done one."

Rhys, who will next be seen on screen in a comedy pilot on Channel 4 called The Amazing Dermot, said he would definitely work with the boys again.

He said: "I secretly don't think it's the end of the end. We'll come back in some shape or form, whether it's a special or a shorts season or a film."

Rhys Darby, manager of Flight Of The Conchords, revealed why he and the boys don't know what the next step is.

"For three or four guys who are so busy and so 'attention to detail' on trying to make the perfect comedy, we are very slack when it comes to organising what's happening next," he told me.

Err, umm. Mixing up real life and the show there, maybe? Makes him sound like their real life manager.
