Johnny Depp spent years working with Terry Gilliam to try to get the director’s dream project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote up and filming, and anyone who has seen Lost in La Mancha (2002), a documentary film narrated by Jeff Bridges, knows how doomed project turned out.
The director has spent more than a decade trying to get the picture into production, but after a series of onset disasters, the film was left unshot. Gilliam’s project may have been dealt a potentially fatal blow, and Deadline now reports that Disney has bought a pitch for an untitled modern re-imagining of Don Quixote to be produced by Gilliam’s onetime star Depp through his Infinitum Nihil banner.
