Indiewire reports that Amazon Studios will provide funding for Terry Gilliam's long-suffering project “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote .|
The director began shooting the film back in 2000, but soon the work had to be stopped due to floods in Spain and the serious injury of Jean Rochefort, who was supposed to play the role of Don Quixote . Eight years later, Gilliam made an attempt to resume work on the tape, but this time Johnny Depp left the project. Last October, Jack O'Connell (Unbroken) entered the negotiations, but since then there has been no news of the long-term construction.
Amazon will distribute the film, and a couple of months after the theatrical premiere, it will post " The Man Who Killed Don Quixote " on its online service. According to Gilliam , he is ready to start filming early next year. The company of O'Connell on the screen will be John Hurt ("Only Lovers Alive").
According to insiders, Amazon Studios may give the green light to another project of the director - "The Defective Detective", the script of which Terry co-wrote with Richard La Gravenes ("The Fisher King") ... Initially, Gilliam planned to make a full-length film, but now we can talk about reworking the original idea into a mini-series format.
