Oh goody! Looks like a classic Monty Python movie is due to be released in theaters soon: CNN.com – Python’s ‘Life of Brian’ to be re-issued.
“We decided this is an important time to re-release this film, to provide some counter-programming to ‘The Passion,’ ” Jaglom told Reuters. “I intend it, hopefully, to serve as an antidote to all the hysteria about Mel’s movie.”
He said marketing for the re-release would play off Gibson’s film by adapting such taglines as “Mel or Monty” and “The Passion or the Python”—“we want to give people a choice.”
The remaining Python members all agreed this would be a good time to bring it back and will help out in promoting the film. It’s certainly one of my favorite Python movies and I never got to see it on the big screen (I was all of 11 at the time) so I’m looking forward to it.
