Shooting began Monday near New Orleans with Chris Poche (“Over The Hedge”) directing from his own script. Jacob Batalon (“Spiderman: Homecoming”) is co-starring as Sancho Panza.
Producers are Trey Burvant through Charthouse Films and Jason Waggenspack through his Neutral Ground Films.
The story is centered on a man who’s safe and comfortable and bored to death with his life. In his state of despair, the stories of passion and pain change his mind until he awakens insane, anointing himself as Don Quixote to find adventure, fame and glory that will make his life worthwhile — while never leaving his one-mile square neighborhood.
“Don Quixote,” published in two parts in 1605 and 1615, centers on a Spanish nobleman who loses his sanity as he seeks to revive chivalry.
