Watch Terry Gilliam’s Cannes Presentation for ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’

24 May 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Never give up on your dreams, people. If Terry Gilliam can go through a cancelled production and more than fifteen years’ worth of failed attempts… well, hopefully you don’t have to, too, but just know that such struggles can be overcome. The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, in its newest and (seemingly) most resilient form, is moving forward with Adam Driver, Michael Palin, and Olga Kurylenko — so much so that the director and producer Paulo Branco recently attended Cannes for the purpose of officially announcing its development. (Which still isn’t the furthest a production has gone, but…)

What would initially seem a dry presentation — you have to love that static camera! — quickly becomes revealing, from details of production’s start (October) to when it might premiere (Cannes 2017) to why his (thus-far-announced) cast makes for the a perfect choices. (Short story: Driver is the only actor to read Cervantes’ text, »

12 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has experienced many levels of development hell. Any version of the film has been in the works longer than any of the TwitchFilm crew's offspring have been alive.

The film, scripted by Gilliam together with Tony Grisoni, is a reworking of the Don Quixote story. Toby, a once idealistic young film student who has turned into an arrogant publicist, libidinous and jaded, comes across a copy of his old student film based on...

Adam Driver set to star in Terry Gilliam’s 'Don Quixote'

11 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Force Awakens actor is circling the passion project alongside Monty Python’s Michael Palin.

Terry Gilliam’s long-gestating project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is shaping up to shoot in the autumn with a hot new star – Adam Driver.

Fresh from Star Wars blockbuster The Force Awakens, Driver could bring fresh life to the film that has been in the pipeline for nearly 20 years, when the role was originally intended for Johnny Depp.

The role of Quixote, first played by Jean Rochefort when Gilliam mounted an ill-fated production in 1998, will be taken on by Gilliam’s fellow Monty Python member, Michael Palin.

The project, recently revived by Gilliam with veteran Portuguese producer Paulo Branco’s Alfama Films which is selling the project at the Cannes Market, is shaping up to shoot this autumn.

The story of how production stopped after Rochefort was injured was recounted in 2002 documentary Lost In La Mancha. Since then, Gilliam »
