The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Director Terry Gilliam has been trying to get The Man Who Killed Don Quixote off the ground for years, with multiple iterations forming and then falling apart. There's even a documentary called Lost in La Mancha about Gilliam's struggles to get the film made with the likes of Robert Duvall, Johnny Depp and Ewan McGregor being involved over the years. Now he's going to try again as he spoke with ComingSoon and said, "I keep drifting back to it, lured back by the siren song of Don Quixote. I’m glad the documentary got made because I think it’s really quite wonderful. There’s something about it because I’ve always been intrigued by ruins as opposed to finished buildings." But will Gilliam ever finish his building? More below!

Gilliam admits, "There may be a film in people's minds based on the few bits of the ruin that still stands, that is a better film than the one I might make, if ever I do." But still he will persist, saying, "I think this is the seventh time. Lucky seven, maybe. We'll see if it happens. This is kind of my default position, going back to that. I actually just want to make it and get rid of it. Get it out of my life." Gilliam has found other projects to make over the years, including The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (which had its own difficulties after the death of Heath Ledger), and the forthcoming Zero Theorem, but Don Quixote remains the one that got away. We'll see if Gilliam can really get it off the ground this time, but we won't hold our breath.
