Bobin teases Conchords reunion

Flight Of The Conchords director James Bobin reckon it's only a matter of time before the gang reunite on screen.

The Emmy-nominated HBO TV series, starring Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement as an aspiring duo trying to find musical success in New York, ran for two seasons from 2007 until 2009.

"You know what? I don't know. We're all good friends, we talk a lot about various bits and pieces so I am sure we will reappear in some form - but I'm not sure when or how," said James, who co-created the series with Bret and Jemaine.

"We would like to, of course! Maybe a film, we will see. They could go off to LA on holiday. Why not?" he added.

Bret has said that there are plans for a big-screen version, telling NME: "We're going to try and do a movie. We just need a story."

James - who reunited with Bret on The Muppets, which is in cinemas now - admitted that success is far from his mind when he starts work on a new show. Before Conchords, he worked with Sacha Baron Cohen on The Ali G Show and The 11 O'Clock Show.

"It's weird, you never think of it in that way," he said.

"I just do what I find funny and then just follow it from there, so I'm always pleasantly surprised that people also find them funny. It's not a planned thing, it's just something I like to do."
