Gilliam has spent the best part of two decades trying to get his adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel off the ground. In 2000, he started shooting the movie with a cast that included Jean Rochefort as Don Quixote and Johnny Depp as his lead character Toby, only for the production to encounter numerous difficulties before it was eventually abandoned. The failed effort was documented in the 2002 film Lost in La Mancha.

First Photo For Terry Gilliam's Long-Awaited Film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

This is our first official photo from director Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. After all that Gilliam has gone through in trying to make this film over the years, it's crazy that it actually got made. This first photo features Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirate of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale
