Don Quixote Synopsis
Terry Gilliam is reviving his passion project "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" nearly a decade after his first attempt was derailed by bad weather, destroyed sets and lead actor Jean Rochefort's back problems.
The new film will revolve around a filmmaker who is charmed into joining Don Quixote's eternal quest for his ladylove, becoming an unwitting Sancho Panza.
Gilliam and screenwriter Tony Grisoni, who also wrote the first version, have rewritten and updated the script.
Variety erroneously posted a pre-written obituary for Terry Gilliam yesterday, prompting the director to respond in hilarious fashion.
Jack O'Connell has signed on to play a jaded commercial director in Don Quixote, a satirical take on Miguel de Cervantes' classic novel.
The long-gestating and often troubled production was chronicled in the 2003 documentary Lost in La Mancha.
Robert Duvall and Ewan McGregor are set to star in the project, which is currently searching for new financing.
Director Terry Gilliam reports that the long-gestating production has hit another "financial hiccup."
The actor will star alongside Robert Duvall in the Terry Gilliam film.
The actor claims that the director wants him for the leading role.
