Fox Plans A Film Version Of “Spamalot”

20th Century Fox has picked up the film rights to “Spamalot,” the Tony-Award winning Broadway musical comedy production based on the acclaimed 1975 feature “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”.

A parody of the Arthurian legend, Tim Curry, Hank Azaria and Christian Slater starred in the play’s original run which became one of the highest-grossing plays of all-time – pulling in over $175 million.

“Monty Python” alum Eric Idle, who also co-wrote the play, will pen the script for the film which Casey Nicholaw (“The Book of Mormon”) will direct.
