Paulo Branco’s Alfama Boards ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’

PARIS — Paulo Branco’s Paris-based Alfama Films has come on board to produce “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” Terry Gilliam’s long-gestated project.

Based on Miguel de Cervantes’ classic novel, “Don Quixote” was penned by Gilliam and Tony Grisoni (“Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas”). As previously announced, “Don Quixote” will offer a modern and satirical twist on the novel.

Jack O’Connell and John Hurt are no longer attached to the project. Casting is under way.

The project, budgeted at 16 million Euros, will start shooting in Spain and Portugal in September.

Tornasol Films and Leopardo Filmes are co-producing.

Branco, a high-profile Portuguese producer, is expected to present Wim Wenders’ “The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez” as part of Cannes’ official selection. His credits include David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” and Raoul Ruiz’s “Mysteries of Lisbon.”
