Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie are joining forces again for a new animated movie.

QI host Stephen - who made his name with university pal Hugh as comedy double act Fry and Laurie - teased Twitter followers that he and the House actor were "cooking up a project together".

He later revealed: "M'coll Hugh & I will be working together to voice the new animated feature of Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost."

Stephen also tweeted a poster for the feature film, an animated take on Wilde's classic ghost story, with his name and Hugh's taking top billing.

The movie, being made by Melmoth Films, is currently in pre-production.

After meeting at Cambridge University, Stephen and Hugh collaborated on a number of TV projects, including Jeeves and Wooster, in which Hugh played Bertie Wooster and Stephen played his valet Jeeves.

They also gained acclaim for their BBC sketch show, A Bit of Fry & Laurie.

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
