Monty Python Troupe Reuniting for Stage Show, But Are Movies Next?
Following rumors this morning that Terry Jones, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin were preparing for some sort of Monty Python reunion, BBC (via THR) has confirmed that the iconic comedy troupe is indeed coming together again. A press conference Thursday will divulge all the details, but Jones prematurely confirmed, "We're getting together and putting on a show. It's real." While it's not clear what kind of show, the reunion has many people saying that Monty Python might also be planning a return to the small screen with a TV show, or better yet, there's talk of a potential movie as well.
Monty Python's The Meaning of Life was the final collaboration of all six original Monty Python members before Graham Chapman died in 1989. There have been rumors of a reunion for years, but this is the first word to come from the troupe itself. As of now, any talk of a movie is mostly speculation, but since Monty Python delivered comedy classics like Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a return to the big screen would be a great addition to this stage reunion. After all, every single one of the cast members is getting up there in the years, so one last big screen adventure would be nice to have in the books for fans. Thoughts?
