No pointless celebs for Mighty Boosh movie

As well as a film there will be a Mighty Boosh tour later this year
Noel Fielding has told Newsbeat reality TV stars are banned from next year's comedy film based on his TV series.

Along with comic mate Julian Barratt, Noel is working on the Mighty Boosh movie.

He says it will be a "massive, epic adventure, multi-coloured, multi-layered, sort of two/three dimensional Wizard of Oz for the future".

Noel did not tell Newsbeat if that means there will be singing, dancing and munchkins as he is only sorting out the first draft of the script.

He has said in the past he would not mind Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger or 80s electro-pop maestro Gary Numan getting involved.

The actors involved?

It is still a bit early for casting but Noel is up for featuring some cameos, if done in the right way.

He said: "I hate those films where there are just loads of pointless cameos. There'll be some cool people."

Characters Howard Moon and Vince Noir could be the heroes of the movie. Noel is adamant it will not feature famous faces unless they are cleverly written into the script.

He said: "We don't just want to have pointless celebrities. We hate that. Unless they're being executed in the film. No reality TV stars, unless we shoot their faces off."

Noel and Julian have got to get a Mighty Boosh UK tour out the way before they can properly get cracking on their cinematic epic.

Noel says they will be touring from September 2008 to February 2009 and the film will come after that.
