Gilliam to try again to make ‘Quixote’
U.S. filmmaker Terry Gilliam will attempt for a second time to shoot his Don Quixote dream project, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Gilliam first tried to shoot the film nearly a decade ago, but the production was sidelined by weather and budget woes, as well as an ailing leading man. The setbacks were chronicled in a popular documentary called
Lost in La Mancha.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
Nearly 10 years on, I find myself lending a hand to get that crazed, giggling bedlamite back in the saddle. I'm talking about Don Quixote. In spite of God and the devil, he shall ride again, Grisoni, who co-wrote
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and
Tideland with Gilliam, told the entertainment industry trade newspaper at France's Cannes film festival.
