Gilliam's Don Quixote Gets Another Chance

Filmmaker TERRY GILLIAM's ill-fated attempt to bring classic novel DON QUIXOTE to the big screen has been given another chance. THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE, based on the work by Spanish author MIGUEL DE CERVANTES, featured a star-studded cast including JOHNNY DEPP and JEAN ROCHEFORT. But, after filming commenced in 2000, the insurer quickly pulled the plug on the multi-million pound project after a spate of misfortunes, including flash floods and illness. The trials of the disastrous shoot were captured in documentary movie LOST IN LA MANCHA. However, Gilliam is still hopeful The Man Who Killed Don Quixote will be completed. He says, "I am told we will have a script back in our hands by Christmas but I have been hearing this for many years, so we shall see. "But this seems the most positive news I have heard in a long time about the project. The problem is, when Johnny Depp is next available, will I still be alive?"
