While fans of director Terry Gilliam anxiously await the eventual release of his upcoming fantasy The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus, let us take a look at what might be next on the former Monty Python animator’s slate. While it looks good that Gilliam will be able to finally re-mount his previously aborted project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, when cameras begin to roll on that will depend on the ever increasingly busy schedule of Johnny Depp.
If Gilliam does find himself with some free time before getting to Don Quixote, Brendan over at FilmIck seems to know what he might do to keep occupied. According to his sources, Gilliam is currently working on developing a screenplay entitled The Zero Theorem, written by University of Florida Associate Professor of English Pat Rushin.
While there is no word on what the story will be about, FilmIck feels that the film will be a smaller scale Gilliam affair, more along the lines of how The Fisher King.
As with any project, but unfortunately more so it seems when it comes to Gilliam, there are still many hurdles between now and the picture actually arriving in cinemas. Until then, though, I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
