Silly walk fans rejoice, for the Monty Python cast will soon be reuniting on the big screen. However, it won’t be for a new Monty Python film, but for animation Absolutely Anything .
The film, set to be directed by Terry Jones, will combine live action sequences with CGI animation, and will tell the story of a man granted the power to do anything he likes by a group of benevolent aliens.
“It’s not a Monty Python picture,” clarified Jones to Variety , “but it certainly has that sensibility.” The Pythons will voice various different characters, with Michael Palin, John Cleese and Terry Gilliam all having signed on.
Jones also expects Eric Idle to join the production sooner rather than later. In addition to the Python crew, Robin Williams is also in place to lend his voice to a talking dog named Dennis.
Absolutely Anything is slated to go into production this spring. And who know, if things go well, we might get another full-blown Monty Python production after all…
