The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
December 17, 2018
Screen Media has acquired North American rights to director Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgard, Olga Kurylenko and Jordi Molla.
The company, in partnership with Fathom Events, is planning a national theatrical release for March 2019.
The long-delayed film involves a frustrated filmmaker (Driver) who is pulled into a time-jumping fantasy when a Spanish cobbler (Pryce) who believes he is Don Quixote mistakes the man for his trusted squire Sancho Panza. Pulled further into the cobbler’s world, Toby gradually becomes unable to tell his dreams from reality.
“Terry Gilliam is a true auteur and his latest film does not disappoint. It is the perfect pairing of a film with a filmmaker, the story of Don Quixote, a man who believes in things that seemingly no one else believes in, until finally, they share his vision,” said David Fannon, president of Screen Media. “Screen Media is thrilled that US audiences will finally get to see Terry Gilliam’s quest.”
