Monty Python members, including Minnesota native, to reunite

Author:

Famed British comedy troupe Monty Python is getting ready to reunite on stage, the BBC reports.

Among the group's members is Terry Gilliam, who was born in Medicine Lake, Minnesota.

Gilliam, the only American member of Monty Python, has also directed such films as "'12 Monkeys," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (along with fellow Python Terry Jones), "Time Bandits," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "The Brothers Grimm."

The filmmaker also directed “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus,” the last film to star late actor Heath Ledger.

Details of the reunion have not been released. Python member Eric Idle tweeted that the group was meeting Tuesday, and a formal announcement was coming Thursday.

Python meeting this morning. Can't wait. Press Conference Thursday will apparently be live on Sky News. I'll get you the online URL.

— Eric Idle (@EricIdle) November 19, 2013

The reunion will feature Gilliam, Jones, and Idle, along with John Cleese and Michael Palin. The sixth member of Monty Python, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.

Monty Python last reunited for 40th anniversary celebrations in New York in 2009, the BBC says.
