The cast from Monty Python’s Flying Circus are reuniting for a live action/animated CGI film, Absolutely Anything. The flick will be produced by longtime friends of the Python camp, Terry Jones and Mike Medavoy. The film is set to film this spring in the U.K. with the Pythons performing the voices of key roles as a group of aliens who give an earthling the power to do “absolutely anything” with the intention of seeing what kind of mess he will make with the powers. In addition it’s being reported that Robin Williams will join the crew as a voice actor.
“It’s not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility,” Jones told Variety. The production team is no stranger to Python films, as Medavoy was a producer of Life Of Brian and Jones co-directed Monty Python And The Holy Grail and was the sole director of Brian, and The Meaning Of Life.
The entire cast (sans the deceased Graham Chapman) has agreed to do the voiceover work as they are nearing finalizing the deal with Eric Idle.
This reunion would be the first for the 5 remaining members who last appeared together at the 1998 Aspen Comedy Festival which was taped for a TV Special.
