Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie reunite for new Canterville Ghost movie
Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are to reunite for the first time in over a decade for the short story The Canterville Ghost.
The comedy duo, who last appeared together over 13 years ago, will voice characters in Oscar Wilde’s 1887 story for a new animated movie based on the farcical tale of an American family who move into a British mansion.
Fry is set to play the ghost character Sir Simon de Canterville while Laurie will play the voice of a gardener who is his nemesis.
Though the project was initially announced in May this year, the show has got the go-ahead after a production deal was struck.
The new movie will be produced by Melmoth films and released in time for Christmas 2014.
