Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Trailer

Yesterday it was being reported that Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote had been pulled from the Cannes line-up due to a legal dispute with producer Paulo Branco, once again casting doubt on whether this ill-fated project will ever see the light of day. However, this morning the first international trailer for the movie has surfaced online, providing proof that the movie is indeed ready to be shown to audiences. The project famously started production back in 1998 with Jean Rochefort and Johnny Depp starring but was eventually shut down due to a number of major setbacks. Now 20 years later, the movie has been completed with Jonathan Pryce, Adam Driver and Olga Kurylenko in the lead roles. Amazon picked up the rights for the US, Canada and the UK and as far as we know it is still expected to be released later this year. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Oh man, I hadn’t heard about that yesterday but reading that link it looks like some old producer may be able to delay the release due to a contract dispute. Can you imagine?? They finally get this thing made and now potentially something else stops it from being seen. Terry Gilliam is definitely dedicated to seeing this through, hopefully this latest snafu doesn’t hold it up.

    I’d really like to see a follow up to Lost in La Mancha. That was awesome because they were on set for the chaos, but I am sure there is an equally interesting documentary from just interviewing Gilliam and his crew about how difficult it was to still get it made the last 20 years.

    Man oh man 20 years in the making?? Man times flies but I am there for his!

    Huh. Much more comical than I expected, but don’t know why I thought Gilliam would be serious.

    Sounds like someone has a personal vendetta against the guy with all the bad luck he’s had.

    How about a Terry Gilliam as director premium? I’ll take any excuse that allows me to watch Holy Grail and Twelve Monkeys again.
