Gilliam Bringing Quixote To Cannes FINALLY!!
It looks like the latest producer hassles to darken the door of Terry Gilliam’s long-delayed The Man Who Killed Don Quixote have been resolved. When the Cannes line-up was announced this time last week, Gilliam’s fable was notable by its absence. Well now it is going to play – in fact it’s been chosen as the closing night film on May 19, the same day it will be released in France. Now, hurry up and show it to us!
In other Cannes news today – having been labelled persona non grata at the festival seven years ago for declaring himself a Nazi, Lars Von Trier is about to rear his enfant terrible head once more, bringing his The House That Jack Built (starring Matt Dillon, Riley Keough, Uma Thurman and and Bruno Ganz) to the festival, out of competition. Also added are Kevin Macdonald’s Whitney Houston doc, Whitney, and a screening of HBO’s Fahrenheit 451, whilst Yann Gonzalez’s Knife + Heart, Sergei Dvortsevoy’s The Little One, and Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s The Wild Pear Tree have all been added in competition.
