So what if it's been over two decades since Graham Chapman died? Well, it sure as hell ain't stopping the living members of Monty Python from adapting his 1980 memoir 'A Liar's Autobiography (Volume VI)' and bringing Chapman along for the ride.
For those who can't quite match the name with face, Chapman was probably best remembered for his roles as Brian in 'The Life of Brian' and King Arthur in the funniest movie ever made, 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail.' Rather than exhuming his grave and seeing what happens, the Pythons are instead going the animated route by supplying their voices to the audio recordings of Chapman reading his book. Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam are all on board for the project so far and are working on getting Eric Idle to complete the picture.
Hit the jump to hear more details on something completely different.
'A Liar's Autobiography' details Chapman's adventures with the Monty Python gang along with his life as an outwardly gay man and closeted alcoholic. But as far as how much of Chapman's account is based in fact, Terry Jones joked, "Nothing. It's all a downright, absolute, blackguardly lie."
Folks, who knows what this movie is really going to be about or what it's going to look like, but for all us fans who thought that a Monty Python reunion became an impossibility when Chapman passed away from cancer in 1989, this news has us flat-out giddy.
How excited are you guys for this Monty Python reunion?
