Found In La Mancha?

Producer Jeremy Thomas has confirmed widespread rumors that he and Terry Gilliam are at work reviving Gilliam's disaster-plagued 2000 production of Don Quixote . The story of the ill-starred movie -- plagued by weather disasters, a disabling injury to its star, and other on-set mishaps -- was told in the 2002 documentary Lost in La Mancha . Thomas told the British trade publication Screen Daily at the Cannes Film Festival that he had spent the past 10 months retrieving the rights to the film (which had passed to the company that insured the film after the production was halted) and that Gilliam will direct it. "We're both really excited to get it underway," he said. He indicated, however, that he has not yet talked to Johnny Depp, who had originally been set to star in the movie, to determine "whether he wants to be involved."
