Terry Gilliam provides an update on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Having wrapped production this summer, Terry Gilliam has been chatting to The New York Times about his long-gestating passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, with the filmmaker revealing that he’s completed a rough cut which has been garnering a very positive response from those who have seen it.

“We’ve almost finished the cut,” said Gilliam. “We’re just fiddling now, figuring out a few things here and there so it’s pretty much what it is. We’ve got still months of work to do on visual effects, sound, music. But as far as the tale, it’s pretty tight now and it’s surprisingly wonderful. I always hesitate to get too optimistic or too excited about the work I’m doing. I’d rather try to stay cynical and slightly distant from it. When you fall in love with something, it’s painful when it

Los Cabos: La Panda, Bad Boy Billy Prods’ Axel Shalson Launch Latino Film Fund (Exclusive)

Mexico City — Los Angeles-based La Panda and Axel Shelson at Bad Boy Billy Productions are launching a pioneering equity fund to invest in Latin American and U.S. Latino movies of both festival and commercial potential.

To be presented this week at Los Cabos by La Panda’s Pau Brunet and Jana Díaz, where they will begin to scout for potential investments, the fund is looking to invest in and co-produce five-to-six quality Latin movies over 2018 to 2022.

It will put up to $500,000 in each movie, which should have a Latin director – from Latin America or the U.S. – or a strong Latin component. Film budgets should be up to $2 million, and at least 40%-50% of their financing in place through public funds and/or pre-sales.

It seems particularly apt that Díaz and Brunet will launch their fund at Los Cabos, a crossroads fest-meet for Latin, U.S. and Canadian movies. Simplified, two film

Locarno: ‘Let the Corpses Tan,’ ‘Iceman,’ ’Winter Brothers,’ ‘Lucky’ Lead Buzz and Biz

Locarno: ‘Let the Corpses Tan,’ ‘Iceman,’ ’Winter Brothers,’ ‘Lucky’ Lead Buzz and Biz
Locarno, Switzerland — “Let the Corpses Tan,” “Iceman,” “Winter Brothers” and “Lucky” led biz or buzz as Locarno headed towards its final straits on Wednesday morning, with, of new films, “Three Peaks” and “A Skin So Soft” having drawn to date maybe the biggest critical plaudits – often the driver of subsequent sales on Locarno titles.

Of on-site deals, maybe the biggest for Europe sealed to date has been Magnolia Intl.’s for Germany, Austria and Switzerland with Zurich-based Xenix Filmsdistribution on John Carroll Lynch’s “Lucky,” starring Harry Dean Stanton, and a Locarno International Competition player.

World premiering at SXSW, the title scored a rave Variety review earlier this year, being described as “an unassumingly wonderful little film about nothing in particular and everything that’s important.” Locarno audience and critical reaction was also positive.

Most of the surrounding territories were closed on “Lucky” in Cannes so the film will get released across the region, said

Rossy de Palma Joins Oscar Martinez on Rodrigo Bellott’s ‘I Miss You’ (Exclusive)

Rossy de Palma Joins Oscar Martinez on Rodrigo Bellott’s ‘I Miss You’ (Exclusive)
Madrid — Spanish star and Almodovar icon Rossy de Palma is making her U.S. film debut in “Tu Me Manques” (I Miss You), directed by Rodrigo Bellott (“Perfidy”), which shoots this summer in New York and Bolivia.

Breaking out with “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” in an association with Almodovar which runs through multiple movies and Goya nominations for “Kika” (1993) and “The Flower of My Secret” (1995) to her role as a straight-talking maid in last year’s “Julieta,” De Palma’s asymmetric features has won her fame and elevation to fashion muse for designers Jean-Paul Gautier and Thierry Mugler, a status part secured by her role in Robert Altman’s 1994 “Pret-a-Porter.” De Palma served on the main competition jury of the 2015 Cannes Festival. In France, De Palma will be seen later this year in Amanda Sthers’ “Madame.”

In her first U.S.-shot movie, “I Miss You,” De

Platino Awards: ’The Distinguished Citizen’ Takes Best Picture

Platino Awards: ’The Distinguished Citizen’ Takes Best Picture
Madrid — Gaston Duprat and Mariano Cohn’s “The Distinguished Citizen,” a lament for small-town small-mindedness, won big at the 4th Platino Ibero-American Film Awards taking its top best picture prize, and multiple further plaudits.

Further top honors went to Pedro Almodovar, best director for “Julieta,” and Sonia Braga, who took the actress plaudit for “Aquarius at a ceremony attended by Edward James Olmos, Rob Schneider, John Leguizamo, Sonia Braga, Kate del Castillo, Geraldine Chaplin, “Narcos” actor Manolo Cardona, Oscar Martinez, Rosy de Palma and Martina Gusman. Also present, among directors: Almodovar, Pablo Trapero, J.A. Bayona and Andi Baiz.

In all, Spanish productions swept 12 or the 14 jury prizes, voted by a jury of professionals who had participated in previous editions. That may be put down in part to “A Monster Calls” featuring among contenders, and winning big time in the technical department, and “The Distinguished Citizen” being co-produced out of Spain.

Terry Gilliam wraps production on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Well, here’s some news you probably never thought you’d read: Terry Gilliam has taken to Facebook to announce that he’s wrapped production on his long-gestating passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote!

Gilliam has spent the best part of two decades trying to get his adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel off the ground. He came close in 2000 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 (and documented in the 2002 film Lost in La Mancha).

This take on the project stars Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) as Quixote and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Toby, while the rest of the cast includes Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta

Pedro Almodóvar bounces back with an absorbing saga of a mother and daughter told in an interesting style. A woman feels isolated, powerless, alone and anguished about what has happened in her life. Is any of it her fault? Or is all of it her fault? How do we hold relationships together, or do they fall apart no matter what we do? Highly rewarding dramas still exist; they don’t all go begging for Oscar nominations… just learn to read subtitles and you too can find out how the rest of the world lives.

Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote begins production (yes, really)

17 years after the plug was pulled on his first attempt, Terry Gilliam has now commenced production on his passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, IndieWire is reporting.

As announced last year (when the project was delayed once again), Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is set to take on the lead role originally portrayed by Johnny Depp in the abandoned 2000 version. However, it seems that Gilliam regular Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) will now take on the role of Quixote, replacing Michael Palin (who himself replaced John Hurt, Robert Duvall and Jean Rochefort).

Joining Driver and Pryce in the cast are Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta), Eva Basteiro-Bertoli (Black Bread) and Rossy de Palma (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).

It's a Miracle! Terry Gilliam Has Started Shooting The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Director Terry Gilliam has been trying to get his film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote made for the past 17 years. Today, he's once again started shooting the film, and hopefully this time it isn't plagued by problems like the first time, which was chronicled in the classic documentary Lost in La Mancha. This is the filmmaker's seventh attempt to make the film!

Last year it was announced that Adam Driver (The Force Awakens) would be taking on the lead role that was originally played by Johnny Depp. Over the years, both Jack O'Connell and Ewan McGregor were attached to the role.

Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Brothers Grimm) is set to play Miguel de Cervantes, the hero of the story. That role previously had Michael Palin, Robert Duvall, Jean Rochefort, and the late John Hurt attached to it.

The movie also stars Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace

Newswire: Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is back in production, for now

It has now been 18 years since Terry Gilliam first tried to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a.k.a. The Movie That Will Probably Kill Terry Gilliam, Instead. In that time, Gilliam has faced a Job-like series of setbacks on the film, from flash floods to sick actors to dead actors to some “Portuguese chap” who couldn’t deliver the financing he supposedly promised. And yet, Gilliam has persisted on the film for almost two decades, blowing through our entire stock of jokes about “tilting at windmills” and the entire project becoming the exact definition of “quixotic.”

Today, IndieWire reports that Gilliam has hopped back in the saddle again, putting together an unnamed source and an Instagram post from original cast member Rossy De Palma that indicate that production has once again resumed:

By all accounts, the film still stars Adam Driver—the latest in ...

Terry Gilliam Has Begun Shooting ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,’ For Real This Time

Terry Gilliam Has Begun Shooting ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,’ For Real This Time
Terry Gilliam has finally begun filming on his very, very long-gestating passion project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.”

A source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. There’s also the first photos from the set in the form of two Instagram posts, one from actress Rossy de Palma (who was to be part of the movie’s original production in 2000) and one from makeup artist Sylvie Imbert.

De Palma’s post, dated Feb. 27, is a photo of the cover of the film’s screenplay captioned, “FinallyHereWeAre.” Imbert’s post, dated March 6, shows her poring over a production grid for the film and is captioned, “Final touches last night.”

The original 2000 production was infamously delayed and waylaid by a variety of disasters, which were captured in the 2002 documentary “Man of La Mancha.” In October 2016, Gilliam was supposed to go into production with leads Adam Driver and Michael Palin,
