The troupe of comedians Monty Python forever changed the face of sketch comedy. Unfortunately, member Graham Chapman died in 1989 due to a bout with cancer. A full reunion with the group is completely impossible now… or is it?
While it won’t be a complete reunion, The New York Times reports that A Liar’s Autobiography: Volume VI, Chapman’s “absurdist memoir,” will be made as an animated 3D film. What’s more, a taped reading from Chapman will be edited to fit in with the rest of Monty Python’s voice performances to make for a cohesive feature. Well, as cohesive as Monty Python could be, I guess.
Fifteen different animation companies are completing work on the film, a collection of “chapters” that boast different styles and run between three and twelve minutes each; the total film is expected for an 85-minute running time.
The film looks to have a theatrical bow in the U.K., while U.S. fans will have to settle for a television debut.
