Terry Gilliam’s wacky and fantastical animation has entertained audiences for years. The Film Stage reports the Monty Python animator will head “a retro sci-fi fantasy” set in a steam punk world. The film will feature live-action puppets with CGI heads and the actors’ eyes/mouths. The story is about a bumbling secret agent charged with stopping an imperalist’s plans for world domination with his steam-powered war machine. Some of Gilliam’s fellow Pythons will loan their voices to the characters, but they remain unnamed at the moment.
