Terry Gilliam and Tim Ollive are moving forward with 1884, a steampunk science fiction, reports Variety.
Ollive will direct with Gilliam co-producing and godfathering the project, which will blend puppetry, miniatures and CGI animation. The film is envisioned as a futuristic sci-fi tale set in the year 1884, but produced in the year 1848. Voice actors are attached but unannounced, though are said to feature other former members of “Monty Python”.
Funding is nearly secured for the project, which will be a joint production between Steam Driven Films and 2d3D Animations (The Triplets of Belleville).
