The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is a film from director Terry Gilliam nineteen years in the making, going through development hell under eight unsuccessful attempts towards production. Johnny Depp and Ewan McGregor were previously involved with the film before losing interest during the time span. Its original production in 1998 even spawned a documentary film, Lost in La Mancha, in 2002 covering its extensive delays.

Now starring Adam Driver, the story follows a deluded old man played by Jonathan Pryce who is convinced he is the titular Don Quixote. Driver plays an advertising executive named Toby who gets swept up in the craziness and becomes his squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th centuries.

The film is now expected to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May of this year.

In related news, Christopher Nolan will present a 70mm version of 2001: A Space Odyssey at the Cannes.
