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

12 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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).

Here’s the official synopsis for the project, »

Little details and whispers have come our way over the past few weeks, but like anything regarding Terry Gilliam‘s forever troubled “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” it seemed too good to be true – and even talking about it would curse the project. But Indiewire reveals that, believe it or not, the project is filming. Right now. Really.

Production company Entre Chien & Loup reveals that Jonathan Pryce has replaced the late John Hurt in the movie, with the cast rounded out by Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko, Joana Ribeiro, and Stellan Skarsgard.

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

9 March 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

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, »

I almost told you, but... let's just say that the production are trying to keep their heads down and I didn't want to knock them off their game. Now, though, Pryce's name has been added to the site of Entre Chien et Loup, one of the film's production companies so, by my record, that's public domain: http://www. »
