It looks like Terry Gilliam’s passion project of a big screen outing for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is finally happening.
Adam Driver has signed on to star in the film, taking over the role which Johnny Depp was slated to play when the film fell apart almost 20 years ago.
Gilliam’s Monty Python chum Palin will play Don Quixote in the film which is due to begin production this autumn.
Driver and Palin are replacing another high-profile duo who were lined up for the roles: Jack O’Connell and John Hurt.
The film follows Toby, a once idealistic young film student who has turned into an arrogant and jaded publicist.
Toby comes across a copy of his old student film based on Don Quixote. He is horrified by the terrible effects the film has had on the quiet village where it was set.
