Not much is known about the plot of this upcoming comedy, although it was said to involve, "aliens, a goofy Brit, a talking dog and buckets of silliness."
Deadline New York first reported on the project, which is being set up at Phoenix Pictures. Terry Jones, who co-wrote the script with Gavin Scott, will direct leading man John Oliver in this inspired crazy tale. Mike Medavoy, Mike Medavoy and Brad Fischer are producing the movie.
Deadline New York also mentioned that Robin Williams wants to give voice to the movie's talking dog. Absolutely Anything could also serve as a Monty Python reunion with Terry Jones reaching out to John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam to voice the aliens.
Financing will come out of the U.K. with production expected to begin by next spring.
