    So... there may still be hope.

    :rotfl: PMSL over that comment.

    Seriously though, It's a great documentary on 'Murphy's Law' (or is that Gilliam's Law :devil:) and hats off to the man for managing to salvage even that out of what they had to endure.

    Latest news on 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' movie, the resurrection;


    The Independent say Don Quixote is headed for production soon. In a discussion with Gilliam, he said: "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."

    Filming first began way back in 2000 but was blighted by an eerie sequence of accidents. Military fly-overs drowned out the dialogue, flash floods washed away the set, and then one of the film's stars, the French actor Jean Rochefort, was taken ill, having to be airlifted to hospital after suffering a hernia. Insurers decided to pull the plug, making it one of the most costly – not to say notorious – cinematic projects of all time.

    In spite of a recent legal decision to award Gilliam rights to the script, he has decided to start the project afresh. The production will be completely re-shot, using none of the plagued footage from 2000: "The intervening years have taught me that I can actually write a much better film. I'm so excited it's going to get done at last."

    Its reported that Terry Gilliam has started work on a new script for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote now that his work has almost finished on The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. For those who have not heard off Don Quixote or Lost in La Mancha, Mancha was the documentary film, which is on dvd about the ill fated shoot of 'The Man Who Killed Don Quixote' film staring Johhny Depp & Jean Rochefort, with natural disasters as flash floods, injuries to cast-members and the Spanish Air Force fly-overs drowned out the dialogue intervening to end the shoot after just five days.
