Monty Python stars Eric Idle and Michael Palin are set to appear in court on Friday over a lawsuit involving West End musical Spamalot.

Monty Python stars sued over musical

Mark Forstater, who produced the classic 1975 comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, is suing the pair, as well as stars John Cleese, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam, over allegations he is owed royalties from the production.

Forstater filed papers last year demanding hundreds of thousands of dollars in a legal dispute concerning the Holy Grail spin-off musical.

Idle and Palin are expected to appear at the High Court in London on Friday, just weeks after the sell-out musical opened for a new run in London.
