Terry Gilliam to retry Don Quixote
The director of Twelve Monkeys had previous tried to make the movie but a series of disasters, brilliantly chronicled in the documentary Lost In La Mancha, stopped filming before it could be completed.
Speaking at the screening of his new movie The Brothers Grimm, Gilliam, who also directed Monty Python And The Holy Grail and Brazil, also announced that Charlie And The Chocolate Factory star Johnny Depp has agreed to be in the film, reports Empire.
The director's new adventure/comedy stars Matt Damon, of The Bourne Identity and Ocean's Eleven, with Heath Ledger, of Monster's Ball and A Knight's Tale, as the eponymous Brothers Grimm in a fictionalised tale of their early life.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote originally was to star veteran French actor Jean Rochefort, who also appeared in Robert Altman's Pret A Porter, in the title role alongside Depp.
