Terry Gilliam Wants to Try 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' Again

Terry Gilliam

Terry Gilliam's disastrous attempt to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was famously documented by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe in 2002's Lost in La Mancha, but he's not letting that experience discourage him.

"I'm going to try to do Don Quixote again," Gilliam told Comingsoon. "I think this is the seventh time. Lucky seven, maybe. We'll see if it happens. This is kind of my default position, going back to that. I actually just want to make it and get rid of it. Get it out of my life."

It's good that he remains upbeat as what bedeviled him the last time will unlikely happen again.

For those who haven't seen Lost in La Mancha, his previous attempt to shoot the film back in 2000 was such as epic disaster that what could go wrong did.

Fighter jets were constantly buzzing above, and a flash flood damaged equipments and changed the landscape. To add injury to insult, Jean Rochefort, the actor who played Don Quixote, had to pull out after injuring himself.

As long as Gilliam can convince A-listers to star in the movie, funds won't be a problem. Let's see if his luck has changed for the better.
