Monty Python

They are all still amazing!!!

Monty Python members reunite

Members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus are reuniting for another film.

The movie “Absolutely Anything” will be a science fiction farce that includes both live action and CGI.

Terry Jones told Variety that he would be directing the film, adding that while it is not a Monty Python film it will have the same sensibility.

John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin are also reported to be on board with the project.

They plan to begin filming in the U.K. in the spring.

The last time the surviving five members performed together was at the Aspen Comedy Festival in 1998.

Monty Python to reunite in NYC
The five surviving members of Britain’s Monty Python comedy troupe reunite for a 40th anniversary gala in New York, where they will accept a British award and help launch a documentary.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced Wednesday it’s presenting its Special Award to the comedy group whose sketch show, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, was first broadcast on Oct. 5, 1969.
John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin are to attend the event on Oct. 15. The sixth Python, Graham Chapman, died in 1989.
“I believe these trinkets are more important than people think,” Cleese said in a statement.
The gala is co-hosted by the Independent Film Channel (IFC), which is airing the new six-part documentary, Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut) in October.
“It promises to be a rare and memorable occasion bringing the hugely talented Monty Python team together again, and we feel that the Special Award is a fitting tribute to this much-loved and singularly British institution,” said BAFTA chair David Parfitt.
The Python team, who all have since gone on to successful solo careers, also made several movies including Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
Idle is the brains behind the Broadway smash Spamalot, which he adapted from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

I remember them too!!

Monty Python remembers Monty Python
A new documentary is being created for air on the IFC and release on DVD and Blu-ray later this year looking back on the history of Britain’s most successful comedy group in Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut). Forty years after the premier of Flying Circus, the living members of the group collaborate with interviews from comedians and celebrities on the impact of the long running nonsense. It’s a figurative Holy Grail of information.
The disc will arrive in October with a suggested retail price to be set.
