Terry Gilliam's Don Quixote gets crushed by cruel fate once again

09.07.2010

I'm not entirely sure just what kind of crap Terry Gilliam pulled to draw this kind of karma, but his endlessly troubled fantasy project THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE has been slain once again.

Not too long ago, Gilliam said the project hit a "financial hiccup". That seems to have led to a seizure and subsequent brain-death, since now tells Variety that "The financing collapsed about a month and a half ago."

Ever optimistic, Gilliam is still hoping to take the passion project off life-support some day: "Robert Duval is Quixote, Ewan McGregor is also there, and we are looking for new financing right now."

Gilliam's literally disastrous attempt to make the movie with Johnny Depp was chronicled in the documentary LOST IN LA MANCHA. While Gilliam says he's since rewritten it, the original script was loosely based on the classic Cervantes tale of a quirky old Spaniard, and involved an obnoxious advertising exec who gets hurled back through time where he meets Quixote and ends up becoming his sidekick Sancho Panza for various adventures.

Extra Tidbit: If Gilliam does ever get this made, he should just call it THE WORLD THAT DROPPED THE GIANT SHIT-HAMMER ON DON QUIXOTE BUT COULDN'T KILL HIM.

All of us fans here at Joblo should all donate 1$ each to Gilliam. Myabe then he would have the finance to make this "never going to happen" film.

Also, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassisus was a great movie. Should have gotten more love.

Fate is a fickle b*tch ...

And so apparently is financing a movie. Somebody should just grow a pair and give Gilliam the damn money. God knows he has earned the right to do this dream project.
