McKenzie Penning “Labyrinth”-Esque Musical

“Flight of the Conchords” star Bret McKenzie says he’s working on an as-yet-untitled script for a comedy musical with fantasy elements. He tells Collider:

“I’m in the middle of a script for a kind of it hasn’t got a name yet but it’s a fairy tale comedy musical, sort of akin to Labyrinth or something like that. I’m developing and that script’s halfway through. James Bobin’s helping me.

I’m the official writer but we’re developing it. 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 penned several original songs for 2011’s “The Muppets” which he co-wrote with Bobin.
