It seems that director Terry Gilliam is starting up his dream project once again... hopefully with less-disastrous results. According to Empire, Gilliam is working on a rewrite of his The Man Who Killed Don Quixote script.
Gilliam was set to film the script he wrote with his partner Tony Grisoni in 2000, but the shoot was shut down after just five days of shooting, due to cast member injuries, a flash flood and the Spanish Air Force intervened. This ill-fated production was the subject of the critically-acclaimed documentary, Lost in La Mancha.
Now, Gilliam and Grisoni finally have the script back, after years of legal hassles, and they're getting back to work.
"Tony and I have started rewriting Don Quixote just this last week. [We] finally got the script back. I re-read the greatest script ever written and realize we gotta get rewriting! I really wanna knock that one out in the next month or so."
He wasn't too clear on what he planned to change in the story, but added, "[I'm] starting to think I was lucky, because maybe the film will be better seven years later. It will have matured a bit longer."
We'll certainly keep you posted on any information surrounding Gilliam's new project.
