As the old adage goes, you can never have too much "Monty Python." (Ok, so maybe it's not a proper adage, per se, but that doesn't make it any less true.) Which is why we were pretty jazzed to hear that there's a new Python flick in the works. Pause for a moment of silent reflection.
So what is this next installment all about anyway? Aliens. Duh. The film will be a science fiction story in which the Pythons play extra-terrestrials who grant wishes to humans… just to see what happens. What could go wrong?
Oh, also: comedy genius Robin Williams has signed on to play a talking dog.
Yes, a talking dog. He'll join John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones (who will also direct). In other words, this is pretty much every Python fan's ultimate fantasy. Well, except that Eric Idle has yet to officially hop on board, »
