Poor Terry Gilliam. Just as the director finally seems close to assembling his adaptation of the Miguel Cervantes novel Don Quixote, Warner Bros. and superproducer Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes) have their eye on the story with the intent to fast-track it to blockbuster status.
Pajiba reports that the project is being described as a “Pirates of the Caribbean-style swashbuckling version of the story.” The studio will reportedly jettison the insanity inherent to the lead character, and set would-be knight Don Quixote’s adventures with faithful squire Sancho Panza amid actual fantasy. That seems like an odd choice, but I haven’t read the book. My only real point of reference is the Wishbone episode, which you check out after the jump.
" I knew there was another movie to be made, and I had a sense of what it could be. There’s a story about friendship in here that can be really interesting, that also involves a road trip. Thematically, there was something interesting about that to me."
Which would you save? ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Star Trek’? Han Solo or Indiana Jones? ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Breaking Bad’? Watch as Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, director Alan Taylor, and Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Golberg are forced to choose.
