In probably the most unexpected announcement, well, ever, the Monty Python team are set to reunite on a move called Absolutely Anything.
Based on a script by Python’s Terry Jones the movie, about aliens who see humans as nothing but playthings, will star John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin who are all already signed on. And Robin Williams (!) is rumoured to have a role as a cgi dog called Dennis, as well as a live-action role too.
Entertainment Weekly broke the story yesterday. In case you didn’t notice, Eric Idle’s name is noticable by it’s absence, producer Chris Cheeser said Idle “knows about the project”. Terry Jones is set to direct with Life Of Brian’s producer Mike Medavoy onboard too.
So the whole team are onboard… can the glory days be re-captured? Unlikely to be honest, but we’ll wait with baited breath to see…
