UPI News Service, 04/07/2018
Terry Gilliam's long-in-development film "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" has received its first trailer.
The international trailer released Thursday features Jonathan Pryce ("Game of Thrones") as a man who believes he is the title character from the classic Miguel de Cervantes novel.
Pryce enlists the help of a marketing executive named Toby, played by Adam Driver ("Star Wars"), whom Pryce believes is Don Quixote's squire, Sancho Panza. The pair then embark on a journey that jumps between the present day and the 17th century.
"Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha," reads the synopsis.
