Famous British comedy troupe to reunite for upcoming science fiction movie . . .

Well, sort of.

The surviving Monty Python team – John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones (Graham Chapman passed away in 1989) – will all supply their voice talents to an animated science fiction movie. (The group hasn’t appeared together since a comedy festival back in 1998.)

The movie is titled Absolutely Anything and was written by Terry Jones, along with Mists of Avalon writer Gavin Scott, over a 20-year period. Jones will also direct the movie.

According to TheWrap.com, the movie is about “a group aliens who grant unlimited powers to a human being. Unable to handle his newfound abilities and apparently ignoring the sage advice of his talking dog, the earthling causes chaos.”

Don’t expect an out-and-out Monty Python flick though.

According to Jones: “it’s not a Python film, but it does have that sensibility . . . It’s a different thing. It’s not really that we’re all getting back together.”

The movie has a rather low $15-$20 million budget and will start filming this summer.
