Monty Python Reunite For 3D Tribute To Graham Chapman

Members of the iconic comedy troupe Monty Python are reuniting for a new film based on the memoirs of the late Graham Chapman - the Python best known for his role as Brian in their 1979 film ‘Life Of Brian’, or his role as King Arthur in ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’.

Chapman’s 1980 book ‘A Liar’s Autobiography: Volume VI’ will provide a base for the film, which will be shot in 3D and will feature voice contributions from surviving members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones. Eric Idle is yet to sign up for the film.

The film will also include audio of Chapman himself reading from his book shortly before his death in 1989.

Members of Monty Python reunited at the Royal Albert Hall for the ‘Concert For George’ concert on November 29, 2002 at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which marked the first anniversary of George Harrison’s death. That line up included Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam with the help of Neil Innes, Tom Hanks and the “seventh Python”, Carol Cleveland.

Check out their performance at the ‘Concert For George’ below:

...and here is an excerpt of Chapman reading from the very book that this film will be based on:

...and while we're at it, the funniest scene ever put to film:
