As documented in Lost In La Mancha, Terry Gilliam’s dream project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has been a production mired in problems of biblical proportions. Now there’s word from the script‘s writer that the project is indeed back on.
Tony Grisoni revealed, “Us survivors of Don Q are a strange kind of dysfunctional family. Every year since we have rewritten the screenplay. And we’ve got quite good at it. You will be pleased to hear the Don is back up and in the saddle and ready to ride under new colours.”
What that means is actually nothing, seeing as the long-attached Ewan McGregor has backed out, likely because he doesn’t want any freak lightning accidents to befall him. However, it should be known that Gilliam has commisioned a design firm to draft up a new logo for the film. I think that’s all the proof we need that this movie is practically in the can. At the very least, the crew will get stylish new satin jackets. (via The Playlist)
