Terry Gilliam's 'Don Quixote' movie to screen at Cannes

UPI News Service, 05/12/2018 

Terry Gilliam tweeted Wednesday that the filmmaker's trouble-plagued picture "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" will screen at the Cannes Film Festival.

"After days of rest and prayers to the gods I am restored and well again. So is The Man Who Killed Don Quixote! We are legally victorious! We will go to the ball, dressed as the closing film at Festival de Cannes! May 19. Thanks for all your support," Gilliam's post said.

Gilliam, 77, had a minor stroke last weekend, but is recuperating at home.

Starring Jonathan Pryce Miguel and Adam Driver, his latest movie is scheduled to open in France May 19.

Gilliam worked on his Don Quixote saga for nearly 20 years during which time production was sidelined by weather and budget woes, as well as an ailing leading man in Jean Rochefort.

The setbacks were chronicled in a popular documentary called "Lost in La Mancha."

Subsequent efforts to get the movie done failed as financing repeatedly fell apart.

Gilliam made the surprise announcement last June that he had finished shooting the film, but a producer sued him over the rights to the work and tried to block its premiere at Cannes.

A French court dismissed the lawsuit this week, however.

A founding member of the Monty Python Comedy troupe, Gilliam is also known for his films "The Fisher King," "Brazil," "Time Bandits," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and "12 Monkeys."
