History is made as Terry Gilliam finally finishes filming The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

June 5th, 2017 by Marc Comments

For almost 20 years director Terry Gilliam has been on a quest to make a movie of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

It’s been a Johnny Depp movie, it’s been a John Hurt movie, but what it never was was a movie that looked likely to appear on cinema screens.

Until now.

The Johnny Depp version was so close to happening and so scourged with problems that it was actually turned into a documentary called Lost in La Mancha and it served as a warning to anyone who planned on filming a movie that many considered to be unfilmable.

And, with Lost in LaMancha, we all figured that that was the end of Quixote’s adventure.

But we were wrong!

Gilliam took to Facebook (below) today and announced that the movie has finally finished filming with Adam Driver in the lead.

And that’s all we know.

Can the movie possibly live up to the expectations of film fans waiting all these years? Well, probably not… but we can’t wait to find out.

No release date yet, but it’s in the bag and that’s big news, indeed.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
