Watch the first trailer for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

After years trapped in what can only be described as 'development hell', Terry Gilliam's long-awaited film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is finally happening and last night the first new trailer for the film emerged online – click below to watch it...

 

 

Gilliam has been developing the film based on Miguel de Cervantes' story since the early 1990s, with the first attempt at shooting beginning in 2000, but the movie adaptation's troubled journey to the screen had become the stuff of legend thanks to numerous production problems and cancellations, with the project being shelved several times.

For a long time it seemed as if this was a film we'd never see, but then in March last year it was announced to considerable surprise that Gilliam had finally begun shooting his fabled adaptation, with Jonathan Pryce in the starring role.

Starring alongside Pryce is a cast that includes Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko and Stellan Skarsgård. The film has yet to be given a release date in the UK or US, but there are rumours it could make its premiere at Cannes this year. As for a release in UK cinemas, we'll have to wait and see.
