There’s unsurprisingly a lot of interest in Absolutely Anything, which reunites the voices of Monty Python stars John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin & Terry Gilliam, with the late Robin Williams voicing a dog called Dennis (although there has been some speculation over whether he’d completed the role before his death).
Now Empire has debuted the first image which gives us a look at Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale, who’ll be more than just voices in the movie, along with Terry Jones where he’s busy directing.
Pegg plays Neil Clarke, a disillusioned school teacher who gets magical powers, which are bestowed upon him by aliens (voiced by the former Pythons).
Jones expands on that to Empire, saying “It’s about a man called Neil, a teacher in a sink secondary school, who gets given magic powers by aliens. He can make anything happen, [but] he doesn’t realise it until his colleague says, ‘What would you do if you could do anything?’ and Neil responds with, ‘I’d make an alien spaceship hit class 4C and vaporise them.’ Then there’s an explosion in the school, and they run to 4C’s classroom, open the door and there’s a vast hole in the ground.”
A February UK release date is set. [Read more…]
