More details have emerged about a proposed Flight of the Conchords movie, but TV network HBO says they know nothing about it.

Earlier this week, Conchords member Bret McKenzie told reporters at a screening of the new Muppets movie that he and Jemaine Clement wanted to make a movie based on their hit TV show, which ran for two seasons on HBO.

"We're gonna try and do a movie. We just need a story," McKenzie said.

But when approached by music rag NME, an HBO spokesman said they knew nothing about it.

"There are no plans for a Flight Of The Conchords movie," they said.

But McKenzie outlined more details in an interview with New Yorker.

"We definitely want to make a Conchords film," McKenzie said.

"Working on this big studio feature (The Muppets) makes me excited about a large-scale Conchords movie with big musical numbers."

He also announced "loose" plans for a Conchords tour.

"We're planning to do solo tours at exactly the same time. On the same venues. And we're going to play the same set list. We'll play the same songs, simultaneously.

"We're loosely planning to tour in the next six months, yeah."
