Depp Plans A Return To Don Quixote's La Mancha

JOHNNY DEPP's success in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN looks set to bring his DON QUIXOTE dream back to life in 2004.

TERRY GILLIAM movie THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE, which was to star Depp, sank without trace in 2000 when the project turned into a disaster with storms wrecking sets and money running out - the catastrophe even became the subject of quirky documentary LOST IN LA MANCHA.

But, thanks to Depp's 2003 successes, which have seen him voted PEOPLE magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in America, Gilliam is keen to get Don Quixote chasing windmills again.

Depp says, "The last time I talked to him (Gilliam), he seemed very optimistic that we could get it back on the road.

"Terry came to visit me one day on the set of Pirates. He was looking at everything, all the giant sets, and he said, 'This is just great. I'm so pleased that you're selling out.

"This can be a giant hit, and we can get Quixote back and running."
