Ewan McGregor cast in Terry Gilliam's 'Don Quixote'

Terry Gilliam has cast Ewan McGregor in his second attempt at directing The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Back in 2000 the film was plagued by flash floods and injuries, and then shut down after a few days of production. Ewan McGregor will take over Johnny Depp's role as an ad executive who travels through time to 17th century Spain, and becomes Don Quixote's sidekick - Robert Duvall will be replacing Jean Rochefort as Don Quixote. Shooting is expected to start in September. Gilliam talked a little about Ewan to Empire:

"And Ewan has gotten better over the years. He was wonderful in The Ghost. There's a lot of colours to Ewan that he's not been showing recently and it's time for him to show them again. He's got a great sense of humour and he's a wonderful actor. He's wonderfully boyish and can be charming - when he flashes a smile, everybody melts. He wields it like a nuclear bomb!" [Empire]


  1. This sounds amazing! I love Terry Gilliam films and I love Ewan. I hope filming goes better this time.

  2. Hey Purple!

    I hope the shoot is okay too. I'll just keep my fingers crossed that the set isn't uh...cursed like the last time.
