  • Release date: 2018
  • Director: Terry Gilliam
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko, Stellan Skarsgård

Monty Python writer Terry Gilliam is directing this adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra's famous novel, but with a twist. While the original sees a certain Mr. Alonso Quixano going crazy in his obsession with chivalry, the movie will follow a young and pretentious advertising executive named Toby (played by Driver). One day in his successful life, he discovers that his student film about Don Quixote had such an effect on a little Spanish village that the man who had played Don Quixote in his film actually believes himself to be his character.

It's been a bumpy road for this movie, as it was originally meant to be shot in 2000 but suffered so many setbacks that it was ultimately cancelled. There's even a documentary about the failed project, titled Lost in La Mancha, which features the original cast and crew.
