The Mighty Boosh film - Who could Robert Smith play?

I posted recently about the boys from The Mighty Boosh appearing in a film called The Bunny and The Bull. However, what I'd like to see is a fully Booshed up film.

The Mighty Boosh is an excellent piece of surreal, bizarre, but most of all laugh out loud funny television. It was created by and stars Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding and is directed by Paul King.

It has long been mooted that it will eventually reach the big screen and a little rumour from the boys shows that this may be moving forward.

Speaking at the NME awards - where The Mighty Boosh won Best TV Show - Noel Fielding talked about his dream casting for the movie spin-off. Noel Fielding is after Robert Smith, front man of The Cure, to play his uncle. Thinking about it that is pretty much spot on casting.

Steve Coogan is a producer of the TV Show so no doubt he will join Fielding and Noel Barratt in the film.

Of course there is no actual date, script or much else in place for this as far as I am aware, but it does sound promising doesn't it (if any hardcore Boosh fans know any more then let me know).

Who else would you like to see in The Mighty Boosh film?
