the man who killedA DON Quixote film that began work in Spain 15 years ago will go back into production.

Terry Gilliam’s ‘The man who killed Don Quixote’ will be resurrected, again, in mid-September, with a budget of €16m.

The last attempt to revive the film was squandered by misfortune when leading actor John Hurt was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

In previous attempts, a flood turned the Bardenas desert set into a nightmare while the constant noise of NATO fighter jets practising in a nearby shooting range made filming impossible.

A documentary film titled Lost in La Mancha was released in 2002, comparing Gilliam’s ongoing struggle to finish the film to Don Quixote’s quest to become a hero.
