LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Ewan McGregor To Star in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Ewan McGregor To Star in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Ewan McGregor has joined the cast of his long-delayed film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote . McGregor will take on the role that Johnny Depp had been set to play in the original, aborted version back in 2000. Depp had still been attached to the role for this version, but with Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 eating into his schedule, and a September start date looming for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Gilliam has clearly decided to go with McGregor instead. McGregor will play, if the current version remains faithful to the original attempt, a 21st century advertising executive who travels back in time to 17th century Spain, where he meets Don Quixote and becomes involved in adventures with him. Robert Duvall has been on board the revamped film, as Quixote, for some time, replacing Jean Rochefort. But the addition of McGregor is brand new. "Robert Duvall is one of the greats, no question - and he can ride a horse!" lau
