Hamish Blake and Bret from 'Flight of the Conchords' make a movie

Comedians Hamish Blake (Hamish and Andy) and Bret McKenzie (Flight of the Concords) are confirmed to star in the comedy Two Little Boys, which will begin filming in Southland, New Zealand in January 2011. The film will be directed by Robert Sarkies (Out of the Blue, Scarfies) and is based on the novel of the same name by Duncan Sarkies.

According to the press release, "Two Little Boys is an irreverent comedy about Nige (McKenzie) and his recently estranged best mate Deano (Blake). The film follows Nige and Deano’s riotous misadventures as they struggle with their imploding long-term friendship which has been put under pressure by an unfortunate incident involving a hot meat pie, a ginger cat and the untimely death of a Scandinavian soccer star."

Director Robert Sarkies is delighted to be working with McKenzie and Blake. “I’m thrilled our script has been given the thumbs up by two of Australasia’s funniest guys. This says a lot about the project and how excited they are about working together.“ When asked about his upcoming screen collaboration with Blake, McKenzie stated "I was initially unsure about working with Aussie comedian Hamish Blake, but it turns out he's alright, for an Australian.”
