Bret McKenzie Writing a Musical Fantasy That’s Part Muppets, Part Labyrinth

Music supervisior Brett McKenzie attends the Premiere Of Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Muppets” at the El Capitan Theatre on November 12, 2011 in Hollywood, California.

Flight of the Conchords co-maestro Bret McKenzie is working on an untitled script that sounds nothing short of awesome. “It’s a fairy tale comedy musical, sort of akin to Labyrinth or something like that,” McKenzie tells Collider. “I want to make a comedy musical with singing dragons and monsters and stuff. [It’s] live-action, so it would be a mixture of The Muppets and The Princess Bride.” McKenzie’s about halfway through writing, and says he’s getting a hand from The Muppets helmer James Bobin.
