Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Bobin Strikes a Conchord with Muppets? Print E-mail

Everyone loves The Muppets. And everyone loves Flight of the Conchords. Everyone with two brain cells to rub together anyway. So the news from New York Magazine's blog that James Bobin, creator of Conchords, has been approached to helm the next Muppets movie is very, very exciting.

James Bobin, who also did some stuff for Da Ali G Show, can write and direct a variety of comedy styles. With previous director Nick Stoller busy on post-production for Get Him to the Greek, Bobin seems a good choice to take on the script from Muppet fanatics Stoller and Jason Segel.

The rumour has it that Bobin has been offered the job - presuming he wants it. Let's hope he can put back Judd Apatow's offer of directing Bridesmaids. That way, the Muppets will be in safe hands. And Rhys Darby may well get a cameo. He virtually looks like Scooter already.
