Absolutely Anything stars Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) as Neil Clarke, a man who is granted the power to do absolutely anything, but just as an experiment.He’s granted this by a group of eccentric aliens, voiced by the entire Monty Python cast – Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Jones.
The film has a huge cast including Kate Beckinsale, Joanna Lumley, Eddie Izzard, Rob Riggle, Emma Pierson, Alexa Davies, Robert Bathurst, Judy Loe, Meera Syal, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Professor Brian Cox, Georgie-May Tearle, plus the late, great Robin Williams as the voice of Dennis the dog (trust me, it’ll make sense when you see the trailer).
Absolutely Anything is directed by Terry Jones, who also co-writes with Gavin Scott, looks like it could be worth a watch, although I have rather had enough of Simon Pegg for a while, and is released in the UK on August 14th.
