Life of Brian Director Terry Jones Directing First Comedy in 20 Years


Terry Jones, Monty Python member and director of Life of Brian and co-director (with Terry Gilliam) of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, is returning to work behind the camera in a new movie called Absolutely Anything.

He wrote the script with Gavin Scott, and it’s set to star John Oliver from The Daily Show. Apparently he’s also trying to get Robin Williams to voice a talking dog so, you know, that’s something.

He’s also reportedly reached out to fellow Pythons John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam, which would be kind of amazing if he got them all on board. We’ll see!
