The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
Coming to Cinemas 23 May 2019
Terry Gilliam's long-gestating adventure comedy adapted from Miguel de Cervantes's classic novel. A cynical advertising man (Adam Driver), finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoe-maker (Jonathan Pryce) who believes himself to be Don Quixote.
Former Monty Python Gilliam started work on the film in 1989 but failed to get it across the line, most famously with his abandoned 1998 production - the subject of the excellent documentary Lost in La Mancha. Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor and Jack O'Connell have all been attached to star over the years. Reportedly, it was Adam Driver's interest in the role that finally helped secure funding for the film.
