Monty Python May Reunite For ‘Absolutely Anything’

By  · Published on September 15th, 2010

It’s been decades since the Pythons have been on the screen together, and even getting them all into the same room for an event has been a Herculean feat, but the group may come back together for Absolutely Anything – a movie written and directed by their very own Mr. Creosote, Terry Jones.

John Oliver, comedian and writer for The Daily Show, is on tap to star in the film that sounds like the typical lunacy and lucidity of Jones. Apparently it features, “aliens, a goofy Brit, a talking dog and buckets of silliness.” It’s safe to assume that “buckets of silliness” is code for the buckets that contain Graham Chapman’s ashes.

Jones is an incredible talent, and if he can bring his pals back together (to voice the aliens, no less) this film will be a no-brainer for fans who have been waiting to see Cleese, Palin, Jones, Idle, and Gilliam back together again. As if it weren’t enough, the offer is out to Robin Williams to join the cast as the dog – probably the most high brow role of his recent work.

The possibility here is overwhelming. Unfortunately, it’s not ideal since it would be their voices (meaning they probably wouldn’t even be in the same room for the project), but it’s a step in the right direction, and no matter what form they are in, it’ll be great to have all of their names on a cast list together.

I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that they sign on and that nobody attacks me with a piece of fresh fruit.
