With Flight Of The Conchords quickly becoming one of the more popular television shows, Rhys Darby has slowly been gathering a rather full plate of projects in front of him.

Along with films like YES MAN and PIRATE RADIO, the actor has a lead in the upcoming romantic comedy, COMING AND GOING. And now Deadline is reporting that the actor will be joining Sally Hawkins (HAPPY-GO-LUCKY) in the upcoming film, LOVE BIRDS, which is currently shooting in New Zealand, and is directed by Paul Murphy. LOVE BIRDS follows a vet who helps a man care for his injured bird.

Darby will play the recently dumped bird owner, and while the premise isn’t all that insanely interesting, I can’t help but be intrigued by anything this guy does. He is fantastic in just about everything I’ve seen him in, and throw in a fantastic actress like Hawkins as his love interest, and you have a project that will have me lining up opening day to see.
