Is it finally happening? Is Terry Gilliam actually going to make his Don Quixote film? He’s had big name stars like Robert Duvall and Johnny Depp attached without the project ever getting off the ground, but perhaps things will be different with rising star Jack O’Connell aboard. It’s being reported that O’Connell will lead Gilliam’s long-gestating rendition of the Miguel de Cervantes novel, this time with a budget of $21 million.
Gregoire Melin’s Kinology is taking Don Quixote to AFM for pre-sales. This will mark Gilliam’s seventh attempt at trying to make the film happen. Hit the jump for more on the endeavor and O’Connell’s casting.
