Gemma Arterton is confirmed and Benedict Cumberbatch in talks to join the comedy "Absolutely Anything".

The story follows a teacher who discovers he has magical powers that allow him to wipe out classrooms of badly behaving students and bring people back to life. As he tries to learn how to use these powers, things just keep going wrong.

Most of the Monty Python alumni are involved in the film which is being directed by Terry Jones and features voiceovers from the likes of Jones, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and John Cleese.

Jones co-wrote the film with Gavin Scott, while Ben Timlett and Bill Jones are producing. Shooting kicks off early next year.
