Stand by for an important and shocking announcement from director Terry Gilliam...
Yes, that's right: Terry Gilliam, who has spent nearly two decades attempting to commit The Man Who Killed Don Quixote to film, has officially completed shooting on the project. It will now need to dodge any number of other calamaties - transdimensional portals, corrupted hard-drives, arsonists, the very real possibility of an actual apocalypse - in order to get edited, finalized, and put into theaters.
For anyone who's not been paying attention: The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is a film Terry Gilliam has been trying to make for a very, very long time. The project almost came together on several other occasions (most famously in an iteration that had Johnny Depp playing the lead; the implosion of that version was documented in the must-see documentary Lost In La Mancha, which all of you should have seen by now), but has never quite made it across the finish line. To hear that filming has actually completed on this version - which will star Adam Driver and Jonathan Pryce - is sort of a miracle. Most of us believed it'd never happen.
So, congrats to Terry Gilliam and company! You did it! Now hurry up and get that thing in theaters before the apocalypse hits. We're dying to see it.
