Eric Idle’s “Spamalot,” the Broadway adaptation of the classic Monty Python comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” is being adapted into a feature film. “Spamalot” was written by Eric Idle with music by John Du Prez and took the film, which was essentially a series of short sketches based on the Arthurian legend, and turned it into a wildly successful musical.
Despite the fact the fact fellow Pythoners had little faith in the Broadway show, it went on the be a smash hit, bringing home the Tony Award in 2005 for Best Musical. The original run of the show featured the all-star cast of Hank Azaria, Tim Curry, David Hyde-Pierce and Sara Ramirez.
Idle is producing the film, which will be casting soon and begin shooting next spring.
