Gilliam States DON QUIOXTE To Film Next Autumn

TerryGilliam1

Lots of excitement in the world of Monty Python as the iconic comedy group announced that they would be reforming for a giant stadium concert next summer. But in the middle of the group’s press conference this morning came a bit of news concerning one of the group’s film projects that almost got overlooked – The start date for Terry Gilliam’s long in development The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

Bleeding Cool caught Gilliam’s answer in response to a question about the project, which he had just announced that he was gearing up for another try at. According to Gilliam, the plan is now the shoot the film “in the Canary Islands next Autumn.”

Having a general time frame and location set certainly sounds like things are a bit further along than the “just trying to scrounge up the funding” stage that most of his previous attempts seem to have stalled out on. And hopefully the Canary Islands location will prove more hospitable than the Bardenas Reales desert locations in Spain where he made his 2000 attempt at shooting the film were.

Of course, as we learned from the documentary made during the aborted 2000 attempt to make the film, Lost In La Mancha, we can’t even be sure that we’ll be seeing the film even after filming starts. History cautions us to wait until the film is actually in cinemas. Here’s hoping it can make the entire journey.
