Monty Python Team Back In Business For 3D Film Of Graham Chapman Story

Monty Python have begun production on their first reunion project since The Meaning of Life in 1983.

Their next film, A Liar's Autobiography, is an animated 3D movie based on the memoir of the late Python member, Graham Chapman, who died in 1989 at the age of 48.

The film will use Chapman's own voice - from a reading of his autobiography shortly before he died of cancer - and entertainment channel EPIX announced today that the film will be released in spring 2012 in both 2D and 3D formats.
