Noel Fielding has high hopes for his film version of The Mighty Boosh - he wants a trilogy.

The comedian revealed to Absolute Radio's Ben Jones he and comedy partner Julian Barratt are writing the film at the moment and already have enough ideas for more Mighty Boosh movies.

Noel said: "Hopefully, I like the road movies with Bing and Bob, hopefully we could just do lots - that would be great if we could do that."

He added: "There's a couple of ideas for films, there's one we've got quite far into, and then there's one that's sort of quite a good idea that we're just working out now.

"And then there's one that's like a musical, like a Rocky Horror type thing, and then there's an album as well, so lots hopefully coming, it's just we need to do some writing.

"It took us two years to write the first series and now we have about six months to write a film, but it'll be alright."

Noel also revealed he and Julian had to take a break from each other.

He said: "We had a bit of a year off last year because we did three series back to back and two big tours, so we needed a bit of a break.

"We did see each other a little bit before Christmas, but we had a bit of a break basically, we were sick of each other's faces, it was like, 'Oh not you again.' It's like George and Mildred, it was like a marriage."
