With more than 60 films appearances to his name, legendary Monty Python comedian John Cleese is not exactly choosy about his roles—how else can we explain his involvement in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle?
Nonetheless, Cleese's unique brand of humor still packs a wallop, so
it's enticing to see he has joined the cast of the upcoming comedy Hunting Elephants. The film will be Israeli director Reshef Levi's follow-up to his heralded debut Lost Islands.

Hunting Elephants centers on a 12-year-old Israeli boy named
Jonathan, who is dealt a cruel double-blow by fate. First his father is
killed in a freak accident while working at the local bank. Then, not
only does the bank deny fault, they also declare they'll repossess the
boy's home. Pushed to the brink, the boy must find money fast, and so
decides to rob the bank that's offended him. But he needs a team.
Unfortunately for Jonathan, the only crew he has access to is three
senior citizens.

There's no word yet on when Hunting Elephants will shoot or is
expected to hit theaters, but already I'm enthusiastic. It's an
intriguing premise that promises a spirited adventure, and while stories
that pair old men and children can sometimes be heavy on sentiment,
with the irreverent Cleese and the poignant Gabai on board, I expect
this comedy should easily sidestep such schmaltz.
