Pythons to take part in fan convention at Doune Castle in 2010 ?...

STARS of hit comedy Monty Python And The Holy Grail are planning a reunion to mark the film's 35th anniversary.
Terry Jones is taking part in an international fan gathering next year at Doune Castle in Perthshire, where much of the movie was filmed.

Jones, 67, who played several roles in the 1975 King Arthur spoof, said he hoped his fellow Pythons would join him.

The team made their last film together in 1983 and Graham Chapman died in 1989.

The five surviving members - Jones, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, John Cleese and Terry Gilliam - have only reunited in public a few time since.

Location Jones played Sir Bedevere, Prince Herbert and Dennis's Mother in the film.

He said: "I absolutely love Doune Castle and have so many happy memories there.

"I'd certainly be interested in returning and it would be lovely to reunite with some of the guys if they were available."

Jones, who earlier this year recorded an audio guide for visitors to the 14th century castle, last visited it in 2001 with Palin.

Monty Python And The Holy Grail was mostly shot on location in Scotland at Doune Castle, Castle Stalker in Argyll and Glencoe.

Historic Scotland, who own the castle, said they expected hundreds of fans from around the world to take part in next year's celebration.

Lady April: Any updates on this yet?

amazonblonde1: You know you are so lucky to meet Michael.he answered my letter long ago and really wrote it and sent me a real pix of him and wrote on it. You know I would have done something very compulsive like kiss him. I did that to Howard Jones when I met him he struck me as being so adorable after I TOOK MY PIX WITH HIM i turned around again and compulsively kissed him on the cheek kept it clean but I could not help it. He did not seem to mind at all after I REALIZED WHAT i HAD DONE OUT OF A MOMENT OF ADORATION I RAN AWAY. LOL STILL A HIGH SCHOOL KID AT HEART I GUESS. NO HARM DONE. I had to bend over of course because I am amazonblonde at 6ft 1and a half. tee hee. So Michael I spared you LOL

Again, no specific dates but it's going to be such a competition to get a ticket... only 500 will get in. x___O
