Monty Python member Graham Chapman passed away in 1989, but his story’s being told in film form using his own (not terribly truthful) words. “A Liar’s Autobiography – The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman” is set to air on Epix as well as screen in a few U.S. theaters (in 3D) via distributor Brainstorm Media Friday, November 2, after having its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Directors Bill Jones (Terry Jones’ son), Ben Timlett and Jeff Simpson have put together an animated movie based on Chapman’s comedic, fictionalized autobiography and using Chapman’s own voice from a recording of a reading of the book made shortly before he died of cancer. “A Liar’s Autobiography” brings together 14 different studios that created chapters in the story using varied styles that you can see in the trailer below. Fellow Pythons John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin all participated in the project, playing themselves and other characters in the film.
