The series won over critics and fans alike with its 2007 debut, but New Zealand duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement ended the show, which also starred Darby, for good in 2009 after two seasons.

McKenzie recently hinted in an interview that a big screen adaptation was in the works, but bosses for American network HBO quashed fans' hopes by stating "There are no plans for a Flight of the Conchords movie."

However, Darby has contradicted the denial by declaring the comedians have discussed the possibility of a film.

Speaking on New Zealand's George FM radio station, he says, "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."
