Lost in La Mancha

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote: Director Terry Gilliam attempted to bring Don Quixote to the big screen in 2000 with Johnny Depp and Jean Rochefort on board to star, but that project fell apart for reasons well explained in the 2002 documentary Lost in La Mancha. But Gilliam has not given up; he tried to obtain financing for a reworked version with Robert Duvall and Ewan McGregor from 2008-2010. That didn't happen, so he's reworked it again and will be meeting with actors later this week, with hopes of starting production early next year. [Variety]
