In comedy, there’s probably no reunion the fans want more desperately than Monty Python. True, many of the members have done terrific stuff on their own, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Eric Idle certainly come to mind, but it would certainly be nice to see them all come together one more time.
Well, it looks like that time may be at hand, and most of Monty Python is coming back with Simon Pegg as well. The movie they’re making is called Absolutely Anything, and it’s a sci-fi comedy where most of the surviving Pythons, namely Terry Jones, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, and Michael Palin, will come back. Robin Williams will be along for the fun as well.
Now we should mention that we won’t actually be seeing the Pythons in the movie, they’ll be providing the voices for a group of aliens who come in contact with Pegg. No matter what form or guise they appear, the Python comedians hooking up with Simon Pegg is irresistible, and we’re hoping this will give the legendary comedy team a great last hurrah.
The script for Absolutely Anything was written by Terry Jones and Gavin Scott, and Jones will direct as well. Now how about somebody reuniting The Young Ones?
