Gilliam does Quixote?

Terry Gilliam Terry Gilliam's epic failure to get THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE made was chronicled in the documentary LOST IN LA MANCHA but that apparently isn't stopping the unwavering Gilliam from trying to get the film made again. Even though the film was plagued with an unreasonable amount of setbacks a mere five days into production, he recently mentioned to "Empire Online" the following: "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 realized we gotta get rewriting! I really wanna knock that one out in the next month or so.” (Tony being his writing partner Tony Grisoni.) In fact, such is his unflappable optimism that he believes he was lucky to have the film shut down in 2000. He says: "“[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.” Wow. Johnny Depp was originally set to star and since he and Gilliam seem to be quite chummy, there's a good chance he'll join Gilliam's wild ride once again.

Extra Tidbit: Can you guys imagine if Gilliam had gotten the job to direct HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE?
