Believe it or not, but Terry Gilliam
is still enthustiastic about that The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
And no, this is not some kind of a bad joke, writer Tony Grisoni
actually (kind of) confirmed that “Don is back up and in the saddle and ready to ride under new colours.” Yeah, his words, I swear!
I’m sure you already know that the production of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote originally started in October 2000, but stopped within a week due to a serious injury to Jean Rochefort, who had been cast for the title role of Don Quixote.
Production was soon cancelled completely due to several on-set mishaps, but Gilliam restarted pre-production in 2009 with Robert Duvall playing Quixote. That, of course didn’t work out.
But now, beside that Grisoni’s statement above, we even have a new branding logo for the project, which was apparently designed by Gilliam himself. Guys from Alfalfa Studio posted it, and here’s how it looks like.
So, any thoughts about this so far?
