Gilliam Talks Imaginarium & Quixote

If financing can be put in place, Terry Gilliam confirms to The Sydney Morning Herald that next up for him is “The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus Gilliam”, a film set in a travelling show which has an attraction that allows patrons to go inside a man’s mind.

He also brought up his famed disaster – “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” which fell apart during production. Gilliam says “I’ve spent the last five years trying to get the rights to the script back. We’re very close to getting them and then we’ll make the film again.”

Johnny Depp would again play an advertising executive who travels back in time and is mistaken by Don Quixote for Sancho Panza – “We can’t make it without him and we can certainly make it a lot more easily now with him. It’s quite extraordinary because at the time, Johnny meant nothing to the studios. Now they’ll kill to have him there.”

Finally adaptations of both “The Defective Detective” and “Good Omens” remain on the cards.
