Simon Pegg

March 25, 2014

Shaun Of The Dead and Star Trek star Simon Pegg will be joining the cast of the upcoming British sci-fi comedy Absolutely Anything, according to Screen Daily.

The film continues the Monty Python revival plan, as it is set to star John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones, all of whom will be voicing alien characters in this goofy live-action sci-fi romp. Pegg is set to play a school teacher who discovers he suddenly is imbued with magical powers, and that his dog can talk. Legendary comedian Robin Williams will voice his talking dog.

The Monty Python crew recently announced that they would join up again to bring their Monty Python sketches to live audiences with a touring performance. Tickets sold out in minutes. 

Production of the film is set to begin in London come late March.
