Kate Beckinsale has signed on to star in “Absolutely Anything,” alongside Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley and Sanjeev Bhaskar. Filming begins late March in the United Kingdom.
Pegg plays Neil, a school teacher granted supernatural powers by a group of aliens. The powers give him the ability to do anything he desires, as the aliens watch from afar.
He turns to his trusty dog Dennis (voiced by Robin Williams) for help, but after a string of mishaps, Neil is forced to choose between his pooch and the woman he wants, Catherine (Kate Beckinsale).
Monty Python members John Cleese, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin will voice the aliens. Terry Jones is directing from a script he co-wrote with Gavin Scott. Ben Timlett and Bill Jones are producing.
