HBO says there are 'no plans' for a 'Flight Of The Conchords' movie

HBO says there are 'no plans' for a 'Flight Of The Conchords' movie

HBO have denied reports that a Flight Of The Conchords movie is being developed. Flight Of The Conchords member Bret McKenzie had stated over the weekend that efforts were being made to bring the comedy folk duo to the big screen, saying: "We're going to try and do a movie. We just need a story".

However, an official spokesperson for HBO told NME earlier today: "There are no plans for a Flight Of The Conchords movie".

McKenzie, who is currently promoting The Muppets movie, has confirmed that he and fellow Flight Of The Conchords star Jermain Clement will tour together during 2012 and that he would still like to make a movie happen.

He told New York Magazine: "We're [Flight Of The Conchords] planning to do solo tours at exactly the same time. On the same venues. And we’re going to play the same set list. We'll play the same songs, simultaneously. We're loosely planning to tour in the next six months, yeah."

McKenzie also repeated his aim that he'd like to do a Flight Of The Conchords movie, adding: "We definitely want to make a Conchords film. Working on this big studio feature makes me excited about a large-scale Conchords movie with big musical numbers."

However, as detailed above, the prospect of a Flight Of The Conchords movie is some way off yet.

Both McKenzie and Clement confirmed when the show's second series ended in 2009 that it would not return for a third series.

A Flight Of The Conchords movie? Yes please!
