Ewan McGregor joins Robert Duvall in Terry Gilliam’s Don Quixote
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Director Terry Gilliam has announced that Ewan McGregor will be staring in his next pic THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE. McGregor will play an advertising executive who time travels to Spain during the 17th century and gets involved with the life of Don Quixote. Robert Duvall is attached to the project as well.
The idea does not sound all that interesting but the real draw is Gilliam’s unique vision. Apparently this has been a pet project of his for about the last 10 years and originally had Johnny Depp in mind but due to Depp’s PIRATE’S OF THE CARRIBEAN commitments, the door was opened for McGregor. The film plans to start shooting in September.
