New details of a film that will reunite 'Monty Python' stars John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones have emerged.

The comedy troupe have reportedly signed Robin Williams to star as a talking dog in the science-fiction comedy.

Forbes reports the Pythons will be playing aliens who grant wishes to humans, just to see what happens, in the film titled 'Absolutely Anything'.

Jones, who is directing, previously told Variety: "It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility."

And now Holy Moly reports producer Mike Medavoy, who also produced 'Life Of Brian', has described it as: “A classic farce - something I feel I know a little bit about after all the Pink Panther pictures we did with Blake Edwards at United Artists. In fact, the movie even has a pompous Frenchman reminiscent of Inspector Clouseau - but there the similarity ends. Like all projects originated by any of the Monty Python guys, 'Absolutely Anything' delightfully defies a logline.”

Eric Idle will reportedly not be involved in the project.
