Terry Gilliam went on to direct such great films as “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” “Brazil” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” (to name just a few), but he began his career primarily as an animator. Before moving to England he was a strip cartoonist on Help! magazine, and then after making his trip across the pond one of his first gigs was as an animator for sequences on the children’s TV show “Do Not Adjust Your Set” which starred future Pythons Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones, as well as other future comedy icons like David Jason.

Hey wait, didn't this wrap already? With lensing taking place this fall on Terry Gilliam's "The Zero Theorem," and the movie in post-production, you might think it's a matter of putting completed pieces together now, but it seems there are still a couple of things to finish up. The movie has already been operating with a bit of mystery around it, and now here comes another piece of puzzle: it seems there is a role up for grabs and Gilliam wants Bill Murray for it.

The German series "Durch die Nacht mit..." ("Into The Night") is the gift that keeps on giving. The show, which gets two artists together and then just shoots them as they hang out and talk over a single day, has already yielded a great episode featuring Harmony Korine and Gaspar Noé (which you can watch right here). And now, making another case that a U.S. broadcaster (IFC maybe?) should snap up the rights and bring it over stateside, the show that aired this summer featuring Terry Gilliam and Jon Landis has made its way online.

The last we heard about Terry Gilliam's 20-minute short film "The Wholly Family" was well over a year ago, when it took home Best Short Film at the European Film Awards. Not bad at all for a movie that got its start as a project sponsored by the pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples. Well, Gilliam took that basic premise, ran with it, and now you can finally watch it.

Uh oh, is the bromance between Johnny Depp and Terry Gilliam fracturing? The pair who teamed on "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas" and "The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus" (with the actor stepping in along with Jude Law and Colin Farrell when Heath Ledger passed away during production) have famously been trying to mount "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" for years, after the initial attempt was beset by all variety of disasters, chronicled in the documentary "Lost In La Mancha." It has pretty much been Gilliam's baby, a movie he's been trying to get back on the horse with for years, but late last week Depp stole his thunder.

As Terry Gilliam gears up to get shooting on his next picture, the futuristic "The Zero Theorem," which is bringing together a promising cast including Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, Peter Stormare, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon and more, there's probably no better time to take a dip into the filmmaker's past. And now thanks to the magic of the interwebs, we can.

The last time Matt Damon and Terry Gilliam worked together, the results weren't so hot. "The Brothers Grimm" was promising on paper, but a bit of mess in execution, a situation only exacerbated by Harvey Weinstein, who famously meddled with Gilliam and disagreed with his approach on the movie. The result? A product that felt compromised when it was released and one that the director lamented. But either way, it seems everyone enjoyed their experience. Damon's 'Grimm' co-star Heath Ledger reteamed with Gilliam for "The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus" before tragically passing in the midst of production, and now Damon will lend a helping hand to "The Zero Theorem."
