Funny film alert! Our favourite Deputy Cultural Attaché of the New Zealand consulate, Rhys Darby, is returning to the big-screen in New Zealand comedy Love Birds. Darby, best known for his work as bumbling band manager Murray Hewitt in Flight of the Conchords, has been cast in Love Birds as a “hunky romantic lead”.
James Bobin, the co-creator of the brilliant Flight of the Conchords, has revealed that he intends to direct the new Muppets movie for Disney. And we think that’s brilliant. Details are being kept secret, but the writer has been confirmed as Jason Segel of Forgetting Sarah Marshal. A combination of Bret and Germaine, Russell Brand and Fozzie Bear? Finally a film we actually want to see!
