Willow co-stars Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis to reunite in Life's Too Short
Fans of 1988 fantasy adventure film Willow will be pleased to see the title's dwarf farmer and swordsman Madmartigan reunited on our television screens.
Hollywood actor Val Kilmer will appear in a one-off special of TV comedy Life's Too Short nearly 25 years after he and Warick Davis last worked together.
The special hour-long episode created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant will be released in lieu of the second series.
Merchant said: "I think fans of Willow are going be really surprised to see Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer reunited on screen. Almost as surprised as Val will be when he finds out what we're paying him."
Also returning to the mockumentary - which picks up where the series ended - will be Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and former EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson, who will again play themselves.
In the new film Davis takes each of them under his wing in the hope of rebooting their careers.
Davis said: "Ricky and Stephen's scripts are always a gift to play and the inclusion of Val Kilmer is nothing short of genius."
Life's Too Short - which will also include on-screen roles for Gervais and Merchant - will be screened on BBC2 in the spring.
