Ewan McGregor ‘Quixote’ film loses backing says director Gilliam

HollywoodNews.com: Terry Gilliam’s second go at his quirky epic “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” looks to be cursed again.

The film which stars Robert Duval as Quixote and Ewan McGregor has lost its financing.

Gilliam tried making the film with Johnny Depp back in the earlier part of the millennium; however the production was plagued with a myriad of hiccups, one being that the production flooded. Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe, fave documentarians of Gilliam, captured the mishaps of “Quixote” in their 2002 feature “Lost in La Mancha.”

Gilliam revealed the latest incarnation’s botched financing at the Deauville American Film Festival on Saturday. Gilliam is being honored at the festival and the event is running a retrospective of his work.

“I shouldn’t be here. The plan was to be shooting ‘Quixote’ right now,” said the director.

Variety had the story.

“Robert Duval is Quixote, Ewan McGregor is also there, and we are looking for new financing right now,” Gilliam asserted about the project remaining active. Despite production problems, Gilliam claims he does not believe in the “curse of Quixote” which “Lost in La Mancha” attributed the first feature’s failure to.

“Don Quixote gives me something to look forward to, always. Maybe the most frightening thing is to actually make the film,” added Gilliam.

Gilliam’s last film, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” marked the final performance by actor Heath Ledger before his death. The film generated just under $8 million at the domestic box office.
