True but I can't see that working for this type of narrative, particularly with 2 leads. I don't even think it works well in Dexter. I don't need a character to tell me (repeatedly) that he's an animal. It's like someone telling you they are sexy. It's better to show it & keep your mouth shut, a little mystery is a wonderful thing. Besides Dexter isn't hilarious and Deano & Nige were. For me the book was all about the inner monologues, the way they spoke and the way I got to know them through that.

However with that said perhaps I am simply not imaginative to envision the outcome of TLB on film. I trust they'll get it right.

I think Duncan Sarkies will figure out a way. He's a veteran screenwriter and it's his own work. I CANNOT wait to see what he comes up with!

Two well-known faces of Australasian comedy will be based in the south early next year to film Robert Sarkies' latest movie.

Two Little Boys, based on the book written by Duncan Sarkies, will star Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords fame and Hamish Blake, well-known for his appearances on Rove Live.

The cast was officially announced today, and director Robert Sarkies said he was pleased to be filming his third feature in Southland and the Catlins. Sarkies previous two films were Scarfies and Out Of The Blue.
"I thought at some stage I better make a film outside of my home town of Dunedin so I figured I'd buck the trend and head south,'' he said.

"I've already been blown away by the warmth shown to the production by the people of Invercargill. From the mayor down there has been a can-do attitude that has encouraged us to shoot there.''

Two Little Boys has been described as an irreverent comedy about Nige (Bret McKenzie) and his recently estranged best mate Deano (Hamish Blake). It 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.''

Producer Vicky Pope said the story had everything.

"A crazy road trip, a love story, wild animals and even a bit of attempted murder. Audiences for this film are in for a very funny ride.''

Bret McKenzie said there was "only so much time you can spend in New York before you wake up and think 'Take me to Invercargill'. I can't wait to get down there and make a New Zealand film about New Zealanders, and an Australian."

Pre-production for Two Little Boys has been underway in the south for several weeks now, and filming begins in January. Southern Institute of Technology students are involved in different aspects of the film as interns.

I never went to Invercargill mostly because what I had heard of it made it sound like my hometown and I was like no, don't wanna go down there. :lol:

God I hope not. (You jest right?) It's about as far away from Auckland as it is physically possible to get while still actually staying in the country! It has it's own charms, I suppose... *cough*
So your Bro's trip is definitely on? Which means YOUR trip is definitely on? Enquiring minds want to know!
