[Cue the “Liberty Bell March”]

The surviving members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus are set to reunite for another film, Terry Jones has confirmed.

The star told trade newspaper Variety that he would direct the science fiction picture, Absolutely Anything.

“It’s not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility,” he said.

Jones revealed John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin were on board and he still hoped to sign Eric Idle.

The last time the five remaining members of the iconic comedy group appeared together was in 1998 at the Aspen Comedy Festival.

In the new CGI movie, the Pythons will provide voices for a group of aliens who grant a human being immense power, which eventually leads to all sorts of disruption.

Well, I dunno.  This could go either way.  Meaning of Life, the last Python fillum, left a nasty taste in my mouth.  And Terry Jones is a first class lib wanker.   I liked his Eric the Viking, but the bits I’ve seen of his teevee series on the Middle Ages are almost preposterously biased.

 

Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Yes, as I mentioned yesterday, today is ol’ Robbo’s birthday.  My 47th, in fact.  The question is, in crossing this threshold, have I now entered my late mid-40’s or my early late-40’s?
