Playing Simon Pegg's love interest...
Kate Beckinsale has signed onto the new sci-fi comedy from the Monty Python team. Deadline reports that Beckinsale will play a potential love interest for the lead character, who is played by Simon Pegg. Eddie Izzard, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Robin Williams and Joanna Lumley also star in the film from Terry Jones.
The film stars Pegg as a disillusioned school teacher who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens watching from space. The aliens are voiced by Jones and his Python co-horts John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin. Struggling with the new-found powers, he calls upon his loyal canine companion Dennis (voiced by Williams) to help him along the way. Mishap after mishap finally leads him to an ultimate conundrum: Should he choose the girl (Beckinsale) or the dog?
