Terry Gilliam Secures $18 million To Finally Bring THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE To the Screen


It’s reported that Terry Gilliam has secured $18 million to finally (or should that be once again) shoot his much troubled Don Quixote movie.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote first went before cameras in 2001 with Johnny Depp in a key role, but the production was shut down following a variety of mishaps and disasters. That shoot was gloriously illustrated in the must-see documentary Lost in La Mancha and since then Gilliam has tried (and failed) to bring the film to the screen many times. Robert Duvall and Ewan McGregor were also in the frame to star in another attempt to shoot the tale, but that version never materialised.

Paulo Branco will produce the film, which plans to shoot in Spain and Portugal in September with John Hurt and Jack O’Connell in the lead roles.

September is a long way away – and anything could happen between now and then.
