Terry Gilliam's Don Quixote is experiencing a "financial hiccup" for his project he's been trying to make for over ten years!
Johnny Depp already dropped out of the film, causing it to be shelved, but Gilliam seemed to revive it this year even casting Ewan McGregor opposite Robert Duvall as Quixote.
But it appears there's more problems than meet the eye.
"We moved forward and then we stepped back a bit. Originally, I thought we were going to be in pre-production right now, but there's been a little hiccup… Robert Duvall is still Quixote and Ewan McGregor is still involved - all that stuff is still happening. There's just been a financial hiccup…
The sad thing is you get used to this, which is a kind of numbing experience. And to be numb is not the best thing to be creative. You gear yourself up for a certain level of work - and then boom: hiccup. Suddenly the energy had nowhere to go. That's frustrating."
That doesn't sound good!
