I want to say we knew about this. I want to say this was one of those movie rumors that came out, like, thirty years ago but nothing seemed to be happening*. But sure enough, “Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists” is coming to the big screen:
Hugh Grant to voice Aardman’s ‘Pirates’
So yeah, Hugh Grant, ho hum. But also David Tennant for you Dr. Who fans, Martin Freeman (for the Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy geeks), and even Salma Hayek (of The Devil Wore Purple Plunder Pants, of course) will be featured as well.
*it was two years ago. I looked it up.
This movie damn well better have cameos from the remaining Monty Python troop! I’m wondering who will play the ham…
Here’s the first trailer!
