Subject: Terry Jones says Monty Pythons will reunite for film

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/26/12 at 2:58 pm

The surviving members of Monty Python's Flying Circus are set to reunite for another film, Terry Jones has confirmed.

The star told trade newspaper Variety that he would direct the science fiction picture, Absolutely Anything.

"It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility," he said.

Jones revealed John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin were on board and he still hoped to sign Eric Idle.

The last time the five remaining members of the iconic comedy group appeared together was in 1998 at the Aspen Comedy Festival.

In the new CGI movie, the Pythons will provide voices for a group of aliens who grant a human being immense power, which eventually leads to all sorts of disruption.

A talking dog named Dennis will be voiced by Mrs Doubtfire actor Robin Williams.

Jones co-directed the 1974 film Monty and the Holy Grail with Terry Gilliam and was the sole director for Life Of Brian (1979) and The Meaning of Life (1983).

In June, it was announced that Cleese, Gilliam, Palin and Jones would voice a 3D animated film based on the memoirs of the late Graham Chapman, the sixth Python, who died in 1989.

However, Idle was not involved in the film, which is expected to be released later this year.

YAY!!!

I hope the Pythons succeed in making a new film.  I'll go to see it even if it sucks!

I'll cross my fingers.  The lads tend to get pissy over old grudges and fight over contracts.  They are getting on in years so I hope they can set their egos aside -- even John Cleese -- and get the job done before another one of them kicks the bucket.

This.  It won't suck.  The description alone seals the deal; Python and science fiction?  A mere mortal thrust into a world he can barely comprehend?  It'll be the best of Monty Python and something of which Douglas Adams would have approved.

I feel better!
