The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has been Terry Gilliam’s Moby Dick, his great white whale… the one movie he couldn’t get made, despite trying so many times. But maybe, just maybe, that’s all about to change…
Dark Horizons are reporting that at a Q&A at the Derby Film Festival John Hurt revealed that Terry Gilliam has asked him to play Don Quixote.
“The story follows an advertising executive jumps back and forth in time between 21st century London and 17th century La Mancha, where Don Quixote mistakes him for Sancho Panza.”
We expect to hear more soon and, after all this time, we can’t wait to see what the movie will become now that Johnny Depp is no longer attached and Robert Duvall – attached as Quixote in 2010 – has walked too.
