The license for Monty Python has been snapped up by British developer Zattikka, who plan to make a range of social games based on the much loved comedy series.
, Zattikka have also managed to entice some of the original Pythons on board for the new project, with Terry Gilliam’s name being dropped amongst the initial reports.
In a statement, the company said: "Monty Python is one of the most iconic comedy licenses around, but there has been no new material for over 20 years. By acquiring these rights we will be transporting Monty Python into the 21st Century, with a totally new experience for their unique comedy that will delight old and new fans alike. Forget Web 2.0, this is Python two point one and three quarters."
The Pythons are well know for writing iconic comedy material, such as “the Dead Parrot Sketch” and “Ministry Of Silly Walks”, as well as for making movies such as The Life Of Brian and The Search For The Holy Grail.
