I can’t help but be excited about John Cleese related news … and with Wallace and Gromit mixed in, well, lets just say my expectations are probably way too elevated …
John Cleese To Write Next Aardman Film:
BBC has news from the Cannes Film Festival. First, the previously announced Curse of the Were-Rabbit Wallace and Gromit short is due in Autumn, and a Trailer is available. Second, John Cleese is currently writing a pre-historic comedy for Aardman Entertainment. From the article: ‘It will be great comedy adventure about a pre-historic culture clash between two tribes, one comparatively evolved tribe, and one un-evolved tribe…Some might consider one tribe might be the English, and some might consider that the other to be the French, the Gauls…Let’s just say it’s the start of the Entente Cordial and it explains why the English Channel is there.’”
BTW: That e-mail running around by John Cleese. He didn’t write it.
