According to Deadline, the movie version stalled after Disney acquired Fox, with Paramount coming in to scoop up the film for an undisclosed sum. The screenplay for the Spamalot movie was written by none other than Monty Python member Eric Idle, featuring music by Idle and John DuPrez.
Casey Nicholaw, who choreographed the Broadway show, is attached to direct the movie. Nicholaw is a huge name on Broadway, as he also choreographed The Book of Mormon, Aladdin, The Prom, and Something Rotten.
