Earlier today I sat down with director Terry Gilliam to talk about his great new movie “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”. Since the movie doesn’t get released until next month, I’m going to hold off on posting the full conversation till close to release. However, since Gilliam gave me a bit of an update on his next project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote”, I figure that’s worth posting today.
According to the Gilliam, he’s cast someone to play Don Quixote, but he wouldn’t reveal who it is. Also, while I didn’t get Gilliam to say it on camera, I heard he wants to begin filming this April, assuming financing comes together. As most of you know, trying to make “Don Quixote” has been something of an endless challenge for this talented filmmaker. If you’d like to see what Gilliam had to say, hit the jump.
Finally, if you’d like to learn more about Gilliam previous “Don Quixote” project, read this. It’s pretty crazy what happened.
