Graham Chapman and the Meaning of Life

EPIX has just released this new clip from their upcoming adaptation of Graham Chapman’s A Liar’s Autobiography. The fictionalized remembrance was originally written in 1980 by Chapman and four collaborators, including Douglas Adams, and it is being brought to life in a new film that will also be shown in 3D at select theaters. It features 15 different and animation styles and narration recorded by Chapman for the audio version of the book. You can see the full trailer here. Like its source material, the film appears to be a mixture of truth and comedic exaggeration. As for the other Pythons, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam all provide newly recorded voicework. (Eric Idle is conspicuously absent). So far this is shaping up to be a entertaining project that captures the free-wheeling spirit of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. We will know for sure when A Liar’s Autobiography debuts on November 2nd.
