Yes, readers, Gilliam is intending on making his dream/nightmare adaptation the follow up to his upcoming sci-fi fantasy The Zero Theorem. And while we at Cinema Blend are pretty sure weíll get new music from the Beatles before we see Don Quixote, his adamant intentions are respectable.

While making the rounds to promote The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, director Terry Gilliam hasnít been shy about teasing his next project, Don Quixote. He has of course, tried this before. It went so badly
On top of the filmís fragile schedule and budget the cast and crew suffered through a number of calamities including noise from an aircraft target practice site, a flash flood and the lead actor, Jean Rochefort, suffering a herniated disc
As much as Johnny Depp may like Terry Gilliam, he doesn't seem to be willing to go tilting at windmills with the guy all over again. According to Buddy TV, GIlliam has admitted that Depp won't be back with him for the second go-round of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
