Bret McKenzie and Hamish Blake to star in Two Little Boys

Posted Tuesday 14 Dec 2010

Trigger Films has announced that comedians Bret McKenzie (Flight of the Concords) and Hamish Blake (Hamish and Andy) are confirmed to star in the comedy Two Little Boys, which will begin filming in Southland 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.

The film is an irreverent comedy about Nige (Bret McKenzie) and his recently estranged best mate Deano (Hamish 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.

Vicky Pope (Trouble is My Business, Choice Night, The Graffiti of Mr Tupaia) and Tim White (Out of the Blue, No. 2, The Boys are Back, The Warrior's Way) will produce.
