Terry Gilliam Live Chat - 24th July 2009 and BFI Season - August 2009


It has been confirmed that The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus will be released in the UK in October 2009. The official site at The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus has just one picture on the site and nothing else, but it looks so gorgeous it's whet the appetite already. There is more on The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Unofficial Fan Site which even features a live chat with Terry Gilliam on 24th July 2009. We can't wait for October, as it looks like Parnassus is going to be another slice of Gilliam perfection - it certainly wen't down well at Cannes where it received a 13 minutue ovation.

The BFI Southbank will be running in August a month-long retrospective of Terry Gilliam's cinematic work. It will include screenings of 10 of films including Brazil, Jabberwocky, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and The Time Bandits. For full details go to the Terry Gilliam season at The BFI Southbank on the BFI website.


In other news Terry Gilliam is still confident of resurrecting his long standing project a film version of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, and that filming of the project will commence in Spring 2010. The saga of the previous attempt to make it was documented in Lost In La Mancha. Little else has been confirmed, but Johnny Deep still seems likely to take the starring role.
