Terry Gilliam’s Don Quixote Project Greenlit By Amazon

We do not generally publish news items here in the third row, and this is not even fully confirmed news, and this isn’t even the first time for this news. But screw it. Amazon Streaming is funding Terry Gilliam’s often aborted The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (see: Lost in La Mancha for the well documented cluster-fuck of the project) a pseudo-adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes famous novel.

According to an interview with the director at indiewire, Amazon is funding the film to get a brief theatrical run before becoming a streaming-only Amazon Prime product. He has even tapped John Hurt to star as the famous man of chivalry who tilts at windmills for a 2016 shoot.

Time will tell if this actually happens, but god, we hope it does.

Please please let it be. I was watching the double the other day and it just made me want to watch Brazil again. I will watch anything Gilliam does, maybe I should catch up on Zero Theorem tonight!
