Gilliam's Plans For Scrapped Movie
Filmmaker Terry Gilliam will revive his abandoned DON QUIXOTE movie project - as soon as Johnny Depp is available to start filming.
Gilliam scrapped his ambitious movie The Man Who Killed Don Quixote eight years ago after just one week of shooting.
The production crew had suffered a string of disasters on location in Spain, and the project was shelved when lead actor Jean Rochefort suffered a double disc hernia and was unable to shoot his scenes.
But Gilliam is planning to relaunch the project early next year (09).
He says, "As far as we're concerned, it's on. When Johnny's ready, we're ready. We're just talking about dates to film.
"Basically it all depends on his schedule but otherwise we're set. It will be next year some time, before next summer anyway."
