Agreed, whats Morris up to these days?
Looks like he's making a film about Islamic terrorist.

The Guardian reported that Morris is working on a film satirising terrorism and suicide bombers for Channel 4. The project, titled Four Lions was turned down by both the BBC and Channel 4 for its controversial subject matter, but has been picked up by Film Four. Morris told The Sunday Times that the film will seek to do for Islamic terrorism what Dad's Army, the classic BBC comedy, did for the Nazis by showing them as "scary but also ridiculous".
