Quite possibly the funniest bunch of fellas ever to walk the Earth, Monty Python are getting back together to start work on a new project. Roughly ten years before his death, Graham Chapman wrote a book called A Liar’s Autobiography Vol 6, and now John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and even Chapman himself will rise from the grave to take part! Recordings were made of Chapman which will be used to bring to life this animated movie based on his book. Only Eric Idle is yet to join them, which is bizarre since he has been more vocal than anyone else in wanting the Python’s to get back together.
A Liars Autobiography chronicles Chapman’s life, from his early days at University, to helping create one of the finest examples of a perfect group of comedians, to the ups and down’s of life life as an alcoholic and his gay relationships. It will be produced by Bill Jones, Ben Timlett and Jeff Simpson and will be presented in animated segments from three to twelve minutes long. Chapman’s voice comes from a recording he made with Harry Nilsson of him reading his book.
This is great news for any fan of the Python’s, and there are thousands. To this day their often brutal humour never fails to amuse me, and the thought of them all working together on a project based on the writings of such a special man fills me with joy and has actually brought a great big smile to my face! There are no details yet as to when this will get released, but considering the hold the Python’s still have over people, I am sure the whole world will find out once the Python’s are ready to announce details.”Nudge nudge, wink wink, say-n0-more!!!”
