Holy Grail jokers John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Terry Jones have agreed to reunite for their first-feature length film in 19 years, “Absolutely Anything.” Eric Idle, the fifth surviving member of the Flying Circus (Graham Chapman died in 1989) , is still considering signing on for the science fiction slapstick.
Jones is set to direct "Anything" this summer in the UK with a budget somewhere in between $15 to $20 million, and he doesn't want the title to be thought of as a "Python" film. Go figure.
“When we were doing Python, we tried to avoid any kind of style," he said. "We kept doing different things all the time, so people couldn’t say what it was they were looking at. The fact that 'Pythonesque' is a word in the dictionary, is the gravestone to all of the goals that we were hoping to achieve."
In true Pythonesque form, Robin Williams is also in talks to play a talking dog.
