The surviving members of Monty Python, along with Robin Williams, have a new project in the works: a sci-fi comedy called "Absolutely Anything."

The Pythons will voice a group of aliens who give an earthling the power to do "absolutely anything." Their reason? To see how much trouble he causes. What can I say, aliens are jerks. There is also a talking dog, voiced by Robin Williams. Of course there is. Still, I'll see almost anything with Monty Python attached to it. Even if director Terry Jones says it's not explicitly a "Monty Python" film.

"It's not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility," he said. That's good enough for me.

David Yates, director of the last four "Harry Potter" films, is teaming up with the BBC to bring "Doctor Who" to the big screen. There is one catch.

"Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch," said Yates.

That's right, the movie will have nothing to do with the television series. This could actually be a good thing as the show would not have to be written around the movie. Yates is currently looking for writers from both the United States and Britain.

Of course, this news means that anyone could play The Doctor. Who would you like to see in the role?
