Don’t call it a Monty Python movie…but it’s a Monty Python movie.
Members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus are reteaming for Absolutely Anything, a sci-fi farce combining CGI and live action, with Terry Jones to direct and Mike Medavoy to produce.
Plans are for filming to begin in the U.K. this spring, with the Pythons voicing key roles as a a group of aliens who endow an earthling with the power to do “absolutely anything” to see what a mess he’ll make of things — which is precisely what happens. There’s also a talking dog named Dennis who seems to understand more about the mayhem that ensues than anyone else does. Robin Williams will voice the character.
“It’s not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility,” Jones told Variety. (Via)
ROBIN WILLIAMS AS A TALKING DOG. So far, Eric Idle hasn’t joined the cast, and Graham Chapman passed away in 1989, so it’s not an official reunion, but still, it’s cause for excitement that most of the Flying Circus gang, and a talking dog, is getting back together to make another movie, their first since 1983’s Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life. In honor of this wonderful news, we present to you the 20 definitive Monty Python movie GIFs, including selections from The Holy Grail and Life of Brian. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to hang out in my high school’s AV room and spend the rest of the day watching “Self Defense Against Fresh Fruit,” just like the good ol’ days.
