After decades of trying, Terry Gilliam managed to complete shooting on his passion project “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” last year. With the film on the tail end of post-production, with VFX and score mostly left to do, the first official still from the project has now been released at the European Film Market with a snap of it appearing on social media.
Jonathan Pryce, Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko, Joana Ribeiro, and Stellan Skarsgard star in the film about an arrogant publicist returning to the village where he shot his student film adaptation of ‘Don Quixote’. He discovers the terrible effect his project had on the town, leading to an unlikely adventure.
The film has already had a few early screenings with early word being very good. Amazon will release the film in the United States, but no release date is yet set. A Cannes Film Festival premiere though is the most likely place for it to be unveiled to the public.
