Monty Python to Reunite for New Movie
If you're a lumberjack and you're OK, recognize a dead parrot when you see one, and know your way to the Ministry of Silly Walks, you're going to want to read this. And then email and Tweet and Facebook it to all your friends who also know every word to "The Ballad of Brave Sir Robin," and think of themselves as card-carrying members of the Knights Who Say 'Ni!" The surviving members of Monty Python are reuniting for a new movie this spring, Variety reports.
Don't expect "Holy Grail Part II," however.
"It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility," Python Terry Jones, who helped develop the script and also will direct, told the magazine. The Pythons will play mischievous aliens who grant an earthling the power to do anything he wants just to see what kind of mess ensues. Robin Williams provides the voice of a talking dog. (No, really.) According to Variety's report, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese and Michael Palin have signed on, and producers hope to sign Eric Idle. Graham Chapman died of cancer in 1989.
