Terry Gilliam may have finally started filming The Man Who Killed Don Quixote


Terry Gilliam has spent the past 18 years trying to get The Man Who Killed Don Quixote off the ground. The documentary Lost In La Mancha shows just a little bit of the troubles he has gone through over the years. 

It was meant to begin shooting in October 2016, but a source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. Of course, Gilliam has started filming it a few times before. I just hope he finally manages to make it through to the end with no more problems.

The latest version will now star Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Michael Palin, Olga Kurylenko, Stellan Skarsgård and Joana Ribeiro.

Actress Rossy de Palma also shared this image on Instagram.

The film, scripted by Gilliam together with Tony Grisoni, is a reworking of the Don Quixote story. Toby, a once idealistic young film student who has turned into an arrogant publicist, libidinous and jaded, comes across a copy of his old student film based on Don Quixote. He is horrified by the terrible effects the film has had on the quiet village where it was set.
