Simon Pegg in Monty Python's movie

London, Dec 15 : Actor Simon Pegg will team up with British comedy group Monty Python for their new movie titled "Absolutely Anything".

The 43-year-old insists he is delighted to join his comedy idols in the film.

"As someone whose love of comedy was hugely informed by Monty Python, the chance to work with Terry (Jones) was a gift. Meeting your heroes is one thing, working with them is something else," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Pegg as saying.

Directed by the group's member Terry Jones, the movie is about a disillusioned school teacher, essayed by Pegg, who is given magical powers by a group of aliens. The movie will be voiced by group regulars John Cleese, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin.

Jones will also be among the aliens, while actor Robin Williams will voice the main character's trusty dog.

The movie has been in the works for several years, but was put on hold due to funding issues. The filming will now begin in March 2014.
