Flight of the Conchords Are Writing a Movie

You know what time it is: it's business time.

After years of speculation, rumour and misquote, we've had the strongest words yet that New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo are reuniting.



Jermaine Clement recently told Indiewire, when asked whether a movie would ever happen, "We have actually started writing one. But who knows if it will ever be made, we've written some notes for some different film ideas. We're not down to the stage where we're going, 'The film is going to be like this,' it could be this, this, this, this, this."

And we like to imagine him saying "this, this, this, this, this" in a glorious New Zealand accent where it sounds like "thus, thus, thus, thus, thus".

Meanwhile, he also told Consequence of Sound that a reunion tour is very much on the cards.

"We were planning on doing it this summer, but then I ended up doing The BFG [Spielberg's big screen adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic] instead. So it's my fault we didn't do it this time. But we are hoping to announce a tour. We'll announce it before the end of the year, hopefully, and then some time next year get on the road… after we get some new guitar strings and that sort of thing."

Jermaine had previously spoken to Billboard in January and said that a reunion tour of the States was in the pipeline, so hopefully, if it does happen, there'll be a UK leg too.

The second, and final, series of Flight of the Conchords went out in 2009 which, frankly, is far too long ago. While we wait for new material, let's indulge ourselves with some classics.
