Graham Chapman-Biopic: Monty Python animated

6

Die Pythons arbeiten grade an einer animierten Version von Graham Chapmans Autobiografie „A Liar’s Autobiography: Volume VI“. Alle sind dabei, lediglich Eric Idle fehlt aus irgendeinem Grund, obwohl er eigentlich immer derjenige war, der sich besonders für eine Re-Union eingesetzt hatte.

Der Film wird ein animierter Episodenfilm, produziert von Terry Jones Sohn Bill, die Pythons sprechen sich selbstredend selbst, die Stimme von Graham Chapman kommt von einem Tonband, das er kurz vor seinem Tod aufgenommen hatte. Nach der Doku „Holy Flying Circus“ über die Produktion und den Bohei um Life of Brian ist das nun bereits das zweite Python-Projekt innerhalb weniger Tage. Good Times for Python-Freaks… like me!

Von der New York Times:

Graham Chapman, whose death from cancer in 1989 forever closed the door on a full reunion of the Monty Python comedy troupe, will soon be back in what might be the next best thing: he will star in a 3-D animated version of his absurdist memoir, “A Liar’s Autobiography: Volume VI,” with most or all of the surviving Python members performing roles that are cut together with Chapman’s voice from a taped reading made shortly before he died.

Produced and directed by Bill Jones, Ben Timlett and Jeff Simpson, who are based in London, the project continues a chaotic afterlife for the creators of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” a BBC comedy series whose run ended in 1974. […] In keeping with the scrambled nature of all things Python, the new film has 15 animation companies working on chapters that will range from 3 to 12 minutes in length, each in a different style.

“Creatively, the different styles reflect the stages in Graham’s life,” said Mr. Simpson, who joined Mr. Timlett and Mr. Jones in describing the project in a telephone interview in mid-June. “Also, it saves us a lot of time.”
