Terry Gilliam - Terry Gilliam Still Keen To Revive Don Quixote Epic

Moviemaker Terry Gilliam is revisiting his doomed Don Quixote film project a decade after the release of a documentary that chronicled his failed attempts to get the epic off the ground.

The Monty Python star has been trying to adapt Miquel de Cervantes' novel to the big screen for more than two decades, and he almost got the concept up and running when Johnny Depp and French actor Jean Rochefort signed on to star in what became a disastrous shoot in 2000.

The production, which was hit by floods and financial issues, was chronicled in the film Lost in La Mancha.

Gilliam abandoned the project, but revived it again in 2009 with Robert Duvall and Ewan MCGregor, but that film also fell through due to financial problems.

However, the director remains determined to make a Don Quixote movie, and he plans to start shooting in the Canary Islands in September (14), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Reports suggest Duvall is still onboard for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
