The Can­ter­ville Ghost

Long­time friends Stephen Fry and Hugh Lau­rie are reunit­ing for an ani­mated film to be released on Christ­mas Day 2014.

Fry told Twit­ter fans that he and the House actor are “cook­ing up a project together.”

Later, he announced: “M’coll Hugh & I will be work­ing together to voice the new ani­mated fea­ture of Oscar Wilde’s The Can­ter­ville Ghost.”

Fry is one of the film’s exec­u­tive pro­duc­ers. Being made by France’s Mel­moth Films, Britain’s Sprout Pic­tures and Canada’s Arc Pro­duc­tions, the fea­ture film is now in pre-production.

He tweeted a poster for The Can­ter­ville Ghost, based on Wilde’s clas­sic story. Fry’s and Laurie’s names receive top billing.

Friends in uni­ver­sity, the pair gained fame in Britain as com­edy duo Fry and Lau­rie. After meet­ing at Cam­bridge, they joined forces on sev­eral TV shows, includ­ing Jeeves and Wooster. Lau­rie played Bertie Wooster, while Fry por­tayed valet Jeeves.

They also received crit­i­cal plau­dits for their BBC sketch show A Bit of Fry & Lau­rie.
