This is our first official photo from director Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. After all that Gilliam has gone through in trying to make this film over the years, it’s crazy that it actually got made. This first photo features Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirate of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha.
The movie also stars Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Good Will Hunting), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion), Joana Ribeiro (Portugal Não Está à Venda, A Uma Hora Incerta), Óscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Jordi Mollà (Criminal, In the Heart of the Sea), Sergi Lopez (Pan’s Labyrinth) and Rossy de Palma (Julieta, The Flower of my Secret).
Amazon Studios picked up the distribution right to the movie and after 17 years of trying to get this movie made, it will make its big debut at Cannes Film Festival this year.
