Following its premiere at Cannes last month and in Sydney the other week, and a theatrical release in France, Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” may have hit another stumbling block.
The other day, the Paris Court of Appeal ruled that ex-producer Paulo Branco is the owner of the film’s rights, and Terry Gilliam’s creation belongs to him.
Gilliam has spent over two decades trying to make the film, and he has finally succeeded, but the decision has seen him face another blow as Branco is expected to exert serious control as to whether it gets a release.
In fact, Branco is now expected to seek damages from Gilliam, Kinology, Ocean Films, sand Cannes. The film has been reportedly seeking US and international distribution.
