(Relaxnews) – British actress Kate Beckinsale will make Simon Pegg fall for her in science-fiction comedy “Absolutely Anything.”

She’ll cast her spell on Neil, an eccentric schoolteacher (Simon Pegg) who finds himself with superpowers thanks to aliens watching him from space.

Monty Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will voice the teasing ETs, while Robin Williams provide the voice for Dennis, the leading character’s dog.

Production on “Absolutely Anything” will start on March 24 in London. Terry Jones (“Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”) will helm the project.

The Monty Pythons are headed back to the stage at London’s O2 Arena in July.
