Gemma Arterton and Sherlock will be up for ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING

1 min read

No, not like that you perves. Arteron will instead be signing on Absolutely Anything, a new film that several members of the Monty Python group have been labouring away on for years. And it looks like she might be joined by regular mind-palace visitor, Benedict Cumbermatch as well.

To be directed by Terry Jones, the film will see what happens when a group of aliens, voiced by Pythons Jones, John Cleese, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam, give the power to do absolutely anything to the worst possible person around, in a galactic cock-up of note.

Joined by a talking dog named Dennis (voiced by Robin Williams), wacky hijinks ensue as our leading man abuses his powers. If he puts down his name for the gig, Benedict Cumbermatch might be the human who has far too much power to control properly. Or responsibly.

It’s not exactly a Monty Python film here, but it carries that signature surreal humour that the gang was known for. Absolutely Anything starts shooting next year.
