García Márquez had been receiving treatment in a Mexican hospital for dehydration and infections, according to CNN.
"We're left with the memories and the admiration to all Colombians and also Mexicans because I think Gabo was half Mexican and half Colombian. He's just as admired in Mexico as he is in (his native) Colombia, all of Latin America and throughout the world," Jose Gabriel Ortiz, Columbia’s ambassador to Mexico, told CNN en Español.
"I believe they were somehow emotionally ready for this regrettable outcome,” he added. “They knew he was suffering from a complex, terminal disease and was an elderly man. I believe [Garcia Marquez's widow Mercedes Barcha] was getting ready for this moment, although nobody can really prepare themselves for a moment like this. »
The Eisner Awards, the "Oscars of Comics" have announced their nominations for the current season (they follow more of a Tony Awards timetable) and the results are heavy on Image comics with Marvel scoring in the top "continuing series" category with the current run of Hawkeye. Maybe there's hope for Jeremy Renner's unloved movie hero after all? Or maybe not. It's up against last year's winner Saga.
I want to share two categories that have particular appeal to us here at Tfe. They have an adapted category (which sometimes pulls from movies) and a digital comics category and you know I keep trying to start one though admittedly I never fully commit.
Best Adaptation from Another Medium
The Castle, by Franz Kafka, adapted by David Zane Mairowitz and Jaromír 99 (SelfMadeHero) The Complete Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes, adapted by by Rob Davis (SelfMadeHero) Django Unchained, adapted by Quentin Tarantino, »

In person, Terry Gilliam's every bit as mischievous, funny, generous and entertaining as you'd hope. The director of some wonderful science fiction and fantasy films, from Jabberwocky to Time Bandits and Brazil to The Fisher King and 12 Monkeys, he's one of the most imaginative and individual filmmakers working - and then there are the wonderful animated short films he created, which came to international prominence thanks to Monty Python's Flying Circus.
When we meet Mr Gilliam on the fifth floor of a London hotel, the sun's shining through the window and the director's positively beaming. He's encouraged because there's plenty of light and fresh air in the room - a stark contrast, he says, to the sometimes dark and claustrophobic rooms he »
Seventh time's a charm? Terry Gilliam has announced that he will be starting production on his long-time labor of love "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" on the Canary Islands in the fall. This is the seventh time over the past 20 years the director has attempted to get his troubled adaptation of Cervantes' "Don Quixote" off the ground. The film has gone through numerous failed iterations. The time it came closest to successful production was in 2000, when Gilliam had Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis on board, filming in the south-east of Spain. But lead actor Jean Rochefort suffered a back injury, and a flash flood literally swept away parts of the location and equipment. This is chronicled in the must-watch doc "Lost in La Mancha." No word yet on casting this time around, though Robert Duvall was the latest actor attached to the title role back in 2009. Depp is »

Terry Gilliam said last week that he plans to start production on The Man Who Killed Don Quixote on Sept. 29 in the Canary Islands. This comes on the heels of Gilliam’s January Facebook post of art director David Warren’s new concept drawing for Quixote, which was accompanied by this message: “Dreams of Don Quixote have begun again. Dave Warren has started doodling. Will we get the old bastard back on his horse this year? Human sacrifices welcomed. Stay tuned.” Adapting Miquel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote has been Gilliam's dream project for 25 years and this will mark his seventh attempt to get

R.I.P. Shirley Temple Black has died at her home in Woodside, California, at the age of 85, reports the New York Times. Born in Santa Monica, California, on April 23, 1928, Shirley Jane Temple began taking dance lessons at the age of three and appeared in her first movie at the age of four. Her first significant role came in 1934, when she was chosen to star in Stand Up and Cheer. She was signed to a year-long contract with Fox based on her performance in that movie and a string of feel-good song-and-dance movies followed. Notes Black in her 1988 autobiography Child Star:
People in the Depression wanted something to cheer them up, and they fell in love with a dog, Rin Tin Tin, and a little girl.
Temple received an honorary Academy Award at the age of six and was the most popular movie star in the U.S. from 1935 to »

"I’ve been pestered to do it for years, and there’s something that bothers me about it," Terry Gilliam told us last summer about the idea of crowd-funding a film. "I think the fact that a couple have managed to pull off something does not mean everybody is going to." But it looks like the filmmaker has had a change of heart. With "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" hopefully/aspiring to shoot this fall, the director is opening up more and more about his plans for the long developing and somewhat cursed project. And he has now revealed that he might just ask you to chip in. Speaking with Swedish site Moviezine, he revealed that he's now considering going the Kickstarter route (apologies for Google Translate). "I've met the man behind 'Veronica Mars,' and he says he can [raise] more money for 'Don Quixote,' " Gilliam said. »

There have been endless rumours over The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for a very, very long time…with a first draft appearing back in 1998. Since then, they’ve gone through numerous casts and continual funding problems but finally, maybe, finally Gilliam says it’s a ‘go’!
Those folks over at Empire were talking about his upcoming The Zero Theorem (Check out a great short behind-the-scenes clip and the bizarre, brilliant trailer by clicking here) and they got onto the subject of the elusive Don Quixote film that’s been troubled by everything from literal injury to fighter jets getting in the way.
It’s now due to start filming late September in the Canary Islands with producer Adrián Guerra who’s been behind the likes of Buried, Red Lights and more recently Grand Piano – so he likes to back a smaller, interesting project it seems. When Gilliam was asked »

Fifteen years after Terry Gilliam first tried to film his unique take on the 17th century literary classic ‘The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha’, the legendary director has announced that his third attempt at The Man Who Killed Don Quixote should begin production around September 29 2014.
The literary classic, written by Spanish novelist, poet and playwright Miguel De Cervantes, follows the adventures of Alonso Quixana as he sets out to revive the concept of chivalry under the name ‘Don Quixote’. Gilliam’s version takes that source material and combines it with modern satire, diverting from the original tale early on by switching Quixote’s sidekick, Sancho Panza, for a 21st century advertising executive who has been “thrown back in time”.

His follow-up to The Zero Theorem will film in the Canary Islands, reports Empire.
Gilliam has famously made multiple attempts to bring Cervantes's classic novel to the big screen, but has been scuppered by a series of disasters including injuries, financial woes and acts of God.
"I'm hoping it's the lucky 11," said Gilliam. "We keep rewriting the script each time, too, so it's a slightly different film each time. It's the same film but the details change.
"Maybe it's better - it's certainly slightly smaller to fit into the new clothing we wear, which are cheap clothes these days."
Of his refusal to give up on the project, he said: "It's obsessive... desperate... pathetic... foolish. It's this growth, this tumour that's become part of my system that has to get out if I'm to survive. »
Could it be? After multiple false starts, actor hirings and firings, and script revisions, maverick filmmaker Terry Gilliam may finally be ready to conquer the demon that has plagued him for most of his career.
During a recent interview with Empire Online, Gilliam said that Don Quixote will be his next project after the release of The Zero Theorem, which is scheduled to begin a theatrical run in the UK on March 14th. Filming on Don Quixote will take place on the Canary Islands, and ...

It has been more than ten years since 2003's Lost in La Mancha documentary told the harrowing tale of director Terry Gilliam and star Johnny Depp attempting to make the infamous The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a long gestating and often troubled movie that has been Gilliam's passion project for more than two decades. Now, the director is back at it, and claims that shooting on a reworked Don Quixote starts this September.
Empire Magazine recently caught up with the filmmaker to discuss The Zero Theorem, where Terry revealed that The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is heading to the Canary Islands on September 29. Spanish producer Adrián Guerra (Grand Piano) helped raise the capital to get the movie back on its feet.
Terry Gilliam had this to say about the producer.
"He's really smart, loves movies. He's young enough to still love movies. But we've still got to »
Terry Gilliam told us last November that his his next project following The Zero Theorem would be his long-awaited Miguel de Cervantes adaptation The Man Who Killed Don Quixote . "I'm going to try to do 'Don Quixote' again," Gilliam said then. "I think this is the seventh time. Lucky seven, maybe. We'll see if it happens. This is kind of my default position, going back to that. I actually just want to make it and get rid of it. Get it out of my life." Production on Gilliam's "Don Quixote" actually began in 2000 with Jean Rochefort as Quixote and Johnny Depp in the role of Sancho Panza. Unfortunately, the shoot met with dilemma after dilemma and was never finished, although the behind-the-scenes of the troubled production did end up becoming a »
The tale of Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is movie lore by now. Not-quite-making-of doc Lost In La Mancha charted the foiling of his first attempt to make it due to a combination of injury, Nato fly-bys and rotten luck. Undeterred, and with a refusal to surrender that would impress even the Spanish hidalgo, Gilliam is having another crack and has concept art to show for it and a new start date lined up.When Empire caught up with Gilliam to talk The Zero Theorem, he revealed that production on Don Quixote will kick off on September 29 in the Canary Islands. Gilliam now has Spanish producer Adrián Guerra, veteran of Buried, Red Lights and Elijah Wood’s Grand Piano (movies made under similarly restrained circumstances) to run interference for him, help raise capital and shoot down any errant fighter jets. “He’s really smart, loves movies, »
Pop singer Justin Bieber has a Valentine's Day date with a South Florida judge on charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. "Justin doesn't have to be there," Ed Griffith, a Miami state attorney's office spokesman, tells People. "He will plead non guilty and the process will begin." The 19-year-old star, who been vacationing with friends and family in Panama, will have his case seen by Miami-Dade Judge William Altfield in the County Criminal Division on Feb. 14. Altfield spent nearly 25 years as an assistant state attorney prosecuting public corruption cases. But, according to the Miami Herald, »

• The Zero Theorem: Venice 2013 - first look review
The Zero Theorem, starring Christoph Waltz, debuted at Venice last year to decidedly mixed reviews: our critic Xan Brooks described it as "a sagging bag of half-cooked ideas, a dystopian thriller with runaway dysentery, a film that wears its metaphorical trousers around its metaphorical ankles".
Waltz plays a mysterious functionary called Qohen Leth, who spends his days attempting to solve the "zero theorem" through the data processing apparatus installed in his ruinous house. Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton and Ben Whishaw are among the notable faces who pop up.
But what of the trailer? It certainly makes The Zero Theorem look like a bizarre, »

Christoph Waltz stars in the dystopian future created by the Monty Python member.
The film centres around a reclusive computer genius (Waltz) struggling to understand his place in the universe.
He is hired to discover the meaning of existence (or lack thereof) but his work becomes more confused when he falls in love.
The Zero Theorem review - BFI London Film Festival 2013
The Zero Theorem will open on March 14 in the UK. A Us release date is yet to be announced. »
A bald Christoph Waltz is searching for the meaning of life and trying to forge a connection with a blonde sex worker played by Melanie Thierry in the latest look at Terry Gilliam's The Zero Theorem. The film focuses on Waltz's reclusive computer genius, who's working on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence. In the latest trailer, Waltz's character is shown grappling with existential angst and forcing his way through the film's chaotic, candy-colored world, designed to represent a commercialized future.

The BBC's adaptation of The Three Musketeers departs strikingly from the original, with its 23-year-old D'Artagnan, its Made In Chelsea lookalike and its pistols, but such liberty-taking ignores Dumas's influence as a seminal historical novelist
Almost everything is wrong about the first episode of the 10-part BBC adaptation of The Three Musketeers, which starts on Sunday. Played by Luke Pasqualino, 23, its D'Artagnan is no teenager (the novel calls him "Don Quixote at 18"), and is not marked out by accent as a Gascon. The Musketeers's opening sequence meddles with Alexandre Dumas's beginning so it resembles a modern movie thriller's violent prologue, thereby distorting D'Artagnan's motivation when he meets and joins Aramis, Athos and Porthos. Wintry rain and snow make his journey to Paris hazardous, although Dumas sets his initial chapters in April.
Equally prone to depart from the original are the scenes at the 1620s French court. Louis Xiii, »
