Terry Gilliam Recasts Rebooted ‘Quixote’

13 May 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s a project he has tried to make twice before, once with a catastrophic shoot that went down in history alongside Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now and the second time with a star cast in place but no funding. Now director and ex-Python Terry Gilliam has revealed he is meeting with actors this week for the latest attempt to nail The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

The story concerns a director who is drawn into the fantasy world of Quixote, a deluded figure obsessed with the age of chivalry who roamed Spain getting into adventures with his assistant Sancho Panza. The source is 17th century Cervantes but the modern treatment was pure Gilliam. The original production became the subject of a documentary, Lost In La Mancha (2002), which chronicled the troubled weeks that saw the cast and crew beset by ill health, freak weather conditions and the military.

John Hurt to star in Terry Gilliam's Don Quixote?

12 May 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

John Hurt could star in Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

The veteran actor has been approached regarding the title role in the famously ill-fated adaptation of the Cervantes classic, reports Sic.

Hurt revealed that he had been contacted about the role at a panel for the Derby Film Festival.

Robert Duvall was most recently connected to the project.

Gilliam has famously made multiple attempts to bring the novel to the big screen, but has been scuppered by a series of disasters including injuries, financial woes and acts of God, which were documented in the film Lost in La Mancha.

Hurt recently starred in Only Lovers Left Alive and will next be seen in Snowpiercer and Hercules.

According to Variety, production has been delayed on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote and will begin in early 2015. »

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, 'One Hundred Years Of Solitude' Author, Dies At 87

17 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez, who wrote One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, died on Thursday. He was 87.

Gabriel García Márquez Dies

García Márquez had been receiving treatment in a Mexican hospital for dehydration and infections, according to CNN.

"We're left with the memories and the admiration to all Colombians and also Mexicans because I think Gabo was half Mexican and half Colombian. He's just as admired in Mexico as he is in (his native) Colombia, all of Latin America and throughout the world," Jose Gabriel Ortiz, Columbia’s ambassador to Mexico, told CNN en Español.

"I believe they were somehow emotionally ready for this regrettable outcome,” he added. “They knew he was suffering from a complex, terminal disease and was an elderly man. I believe [Garcia Marquez's widow Mercedes Barcha] was getting ready for this moment, although nobody can really prepare themselves for a moment like this. »

Gabriel García Márquez Dead at 87: Celebs React to Nobel Laureate Author's Passing

17 April 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Gabriel García Márquez, the Nobel Prize-winning Colombian writer, has passed away at the age of 87. Márquez rose to literary fame after his seminal 1967 novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude, sold more than 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. Quite possibly the most famous Spanish-language writer since 17th century writer Miguel de Cervantes, Márquez popularized the literary genre known as magic realism. He also penned Chronicle of a Death Foretold and Love in the Time of Cholera, among many others, which were met with huge success and critical acclaim. The novelist died at his home surrounded by his wife and other members of his family in Mexico City, local news »

Eisner Award Nominees

16 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Eisner Awards, the "Oscars of Comics" have announced their nominations for the current season (they follow more of a Tony Awards timetable) and the results are heavy on Image comics with Marvel scoring in the top "continuing series" category with the current run of Hawkeye. Maybe there's hope for Jeremy Renner's unloved movie hero after all?  Or maybe not. It's up against last year's winner Saga. 

I want to share two categories that have particular appeal to us here at Tfe. They have an adapted category (which sometimes pulls from movies) and a digital comics category and you know I keep trying to start one though admittedly I never fully commit.

Best Adaptation from Another Medium

The Castle, by Franz Kafka, adapted by David Zane Mairowitz and Jaromír 99 (SelfMadeHero) The Complete Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes, adapted by by Rob Davis (SelfMadeHero) Django Unchained, adapted by Quentin Tarantino, »

Terry Gilliam on directing Berlioz operas and the truth about the Monty Python reunion

12 March 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

It's already turning out to be some year for Terry Gilliam. His soon-to-be-released new film, The Zero Theorem, sees Christoph Waltz try to uncover the meaning of life; in June he takes his second stab at directing a Berlioz work for the English National Opera; there's the small matter of The Monty Python reunion; and then, to round off the year, his long-gestating The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, after the novel by Miguel de Cervantes, is due to go into production. »

Page to stage: is it always second best?

25 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Adaptations of novels are rife in theatre. But it's wrong to think of them as inferior – sometimes they are more than a match for the original works

Over the weekend I was in Bristol watching Sally Cookson's marvellously textured devised version of Jane Eyre at the Old Vic. It might be the 19th-century title that's getting audiences into the building, but once they are there they will be watching a piece that uses all the tools of 21st-century theatre. It is a show that is a million miles away from the literal and literary adaptations that were part of my youthful theatregoing.

Like Melly Still's Coram Boy, Dennis Kelly and Tim Minchin's Matilda, Simon Stephens and Marianne Elliott's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, and Tom Frankland and Keir Cooper's Don Quijote (which actually takes a hacksaw to Cervantes's book), the »

Terry Gilliam Plans to Film Long-Troubled 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' This Fall

19 February 2014 10:53 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Seventh time's a charm? Terry Gilliam has announced that he will be starting production on his long-time labor of love "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" on the Canary Islands in the fall. This is the seventh time over the past 20 years the director has attempted to get his troubled adaptation of Cervantes' "Don Quixote" off the ground. The film has gone through numerous failed iterations. The time it came closest to successful production was in 2000, when Gilliam had Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis on board, filming in the south-east of Spain. But lead actor Jean Rochefort suffered a back injury, and a flash flood literally swept away parts of the location and equipment. This is chronicled in the must-watch doc "Lost in La Mancha." No word yet on casting this time around, though Robert Duvall was the latest actor attached to the title role back in 2009. Depp is »

Terry Gilliam: 'Don Quixote' Will Ride Again

17 February 2014 12:55 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Terry Gilliam said last week that he plans to start production on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote on Sept. 29 in the Canary Islands. This comes on the heels of Gilliam’s January Facebook post of art director David Warren’s new concept drawing for Quixote, which was accompanied by this message: “Dreams of Don Quixote have begun again. Dave Warren has started doodling. Will we get the old bastard back on his horse this year? Human sacrifices welcomed. Stay tuned.” Adapting Miquel de CervantesDon Quixote has been Gilliam's dream project for 25 years and this will mark his seventh attempt to get

Terry Gilliam Breathes Life Back Into The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

10 February 2014 3:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fifteen years after Terry Gilliam first tried to film his unique take on the 17th century literary classic ‘The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha’, the legendary director has announced that his third attempt at The Man Who Killed Don Quixote should begin production around September 29 2014.

The literary classic, written by Spanish novelist, poet and playwright Miguel De Cervantes, follows the adventures of Alonso Quixana as he sets out to revive the concept of chivalry under the name ‘Don Quixote’. Gilliam’s version takes that source material and combines it with modern satire, diverting from the original tale early on by switching Quixote’s sidekick, Sancho Panza, for a 21st century advertising executive who has been “thrown back in time”.

The first chapter of the long, painful story of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was documented in the 2002 film Lost In La Mancha. Intended as a ‘making of »

Terry Gilliam filming Don Quixote from September

10 February 2014 2:17 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote will begin shooting in September.

His follow-up to The Zero Theorem will film in the Canary Islands, reports Empire.

Gilliam has famously made multiple attempts to bring Cervantes's classic novel to the big screen, but has been scuppered by a series of disasters including injuries, financial woes and acts of God.

"I'm hoping it's the lucky 11," said Gilliam. "We keep rewriting the script each time, too, so it's a slightly different film each time. It's the same film but the details change.

"Maybe it's better - it's certainly slightly smaller to fit into the new clothing we wear, which are cheap clothes these days."

Of his refusal to give up on the project, he said: "It's obsessive... desperate... pathetic... foolish. It's this growth, this tumour that's become part of my system that has to get out if I'm to survive. »

Terry Gilliam to Start Filming Don Quixote in September

8 February 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Terry Gilliam told us last November that his his next project following The Zero Theorem would be his long-awaited Miguel de Cervantes adaptation The Man Who Killed Don Quixote . "I'm going to try to do 'Don Quixote' again," Gilliam said then. "I think this is the seventh time. Lucky seven, maybe. We'll see if it happens. This is kind of my default position, going back to that. I actually just want to make it and get rid of it. Get it out of my life." Production on Gilliam's "Don Quixote" actually began in 2000 with Jean Rochefort as Quixote and Johnny Depp in the role of Sancho Panza. Unfortunately, the shoot met with dilemma after dilemma and was never finished, although the behind-the-scenes of the troubled production did end up becoming a »
