  • The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Monty Python founder Gilliam has struggled for almost two decades to get the film, one of the most ill-fated in movie history, to the screen.

A legal bid by producer Paulo Branco to stop the film's screening in Cannes was on Wednesday dismissed by a court in France, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, with the organizers now presumably free to let the film have its planned world premiere on the festival's closing night.

Terry Gilliam was hospitalised at the weekend, as he waits for a court verdict over whether his movie The Man Who Killed Don Quixote can be shown at the Cannes Film Festival.

"After days of rest and prayers to the gods I am restored and well again", the director wrote on Twitter. May 19. Thanks for all your support.

In a sharply worded response to the actions of Branco and his lawyers last month, Cannes organizers said they would respect decision of the French judge at a hearing that began May 7.

In the underlying litigation, Branco claims he was wrongly cut out as a producer on "Don Quixote", in breach of an agreement he and Gilliam signed in 2016.

Mr. Aigle also said that despite suffering "slight health issues" recently, Mr. Gilliam will come to Cannes on May 17 to present his film and meet the press.

There was a even a documentary made about the disasters the movie faced, Lost In La Mancha, released in 2002.

A statement given to Deadline reads: "Whilst we don't comment on personal health matters, we can confirm that Terry Gilliam is now at home preparing for his trip to Cannes next week in support of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote". The two starring roles were eventually recast several times, until it was finally confirmed that Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver would star.

Gilliam caused controversy earlier this year when he hit out at the #MeToo movement, claiming some women had used it to further their careers.
