In the works since at least 2010, the return to the big screen of legendary comic troupe Monty Python has been slow going to say the least. "Absolutely Anything," which would mark the reunion of the surviving members of the comic team in a movie outing for the first time since 1983's "The Meaning of Life," got a bit more movement at the beginning of this year when Robin Williams joined in a voice role....and then that was it. But now, two kind of surprising names have been added to the comedy romp. The Wrap reports that Benedict Cumberbatch and Gemma Arterton are joining the movie that centers on a teacher who discovers he has incredible powers, with the ability to wipe out entire classrooms and bring people back from the dead. But learning how to use them properly causes a variety of (very British, probably) mishaps. There's no word »
