It’s confirmed that we will be getting a lot more of Monty Pythons than we hoped for in the coming year. They will be a part of a film called “Absolutely Anything.” Four of the five surviving Pythons, John Cleese, Terry Gillian, Michael Palin and Terry Jones (who’s also directing), will be voicing aliens who give powers to a down on his luck school teacher. Until the Pythons announced their reunion of the Flying Circus a few weeks ago, fans of the British cult comedy troupe were banking on this film to see, or at least hear the Pythons together again.
It’s also been confirmed that British comedian and film star Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) will be taking his place among the legends as the teacher the aliens help. To top of this comedy event, American comedy legend Robin Williams will be voicing Pegg’s dog.
The film will be a CGI/live-action hybrid from. with both the aliens and the dog being CGI. The film was originally set to star John Oliver (The Daily Show) as the teacher, but with his show set to start filming around the same time as the movie, February 2014, he had to back out.
No work on a release date for the film, but as soon as we know more details, we will let you know!
