A Closer Look at Adam Driver’s Role in a Don Quixote Film Story
After many mishaps and revisions, we are finally getting The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
Terry Gilliam, famous for his work writing the Monty Python films, has been working on this film for more than twenty years now. After many mishaps and issues in the nineties, which led to the 2002 documentary, Lost in La Mancha, we were starting to lose hope. However, we finally have a trailer and it looks incredibly exciting.
“Keep your eyes and ears open on Monday the 25th. Big announcement re: The Man Who Killed Don Quixote in the USA. (spoiler) Quixote may not be the new Democratic challenger to T.Rump.”
– Terry Gilliam on Facebook

This film, which is a zany re-telling of Miguel de Cervantes’ 1605 masterpiece, Don Quixote, will star Adam Driver, Stellan Skarsgard, Olga Kurylenko, and Jordi Molla. The story will be a mixture of backstage Hollywood drama, classic comedy, and alternate realities. It will be just as crazy as the original story, which makes it all the better!
“Adam is an extraordinary actor. We had a meeting, and it was one of those immediate, instinctive reactions when I thought: this is the guy. Adam is a great reactor, and his timing is brilliant. He just gave himself up totally to the role” – T. Gilliam

The newest trailer features Adam Driver as Toby, the main character, who goes from an advertising director on a movie to being in seventeenth-century Spain. It also gives us some incredible clips of Jonathan Pryce as Don Quixote and more of all the stars showing off their acting and comedy chops in some incredible costumes.
This film will be a one-night event on April 10th, so make sure you plan ahead and don’t miss a moment!
