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."

Yes, Terry Gilliam is finally at work on a new film that is actually greenlit, has funding, is in pre-production and looking at a scheduled shooting start date. Announced last week, "The Zero Theorem" will star Christoph Waltz as Qohen in a futuristic story about a computer hacker whose work to find the reason for human existence is constantly diverted and interrupted thanks to the Management, who send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him. If anything, Gilliam must be glad to be talking about a project that isn't "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," and indeed he's spilled a few details about what we can expect from his next effort.

It was just last month that Terry Gilliam said that his long developing, forever plagued "The Who Killed Don Quixote" wouldn't be next, revealing that he was starting work on new film that would come first. "Romania. Let’s just say that I’ve been seen around Bucharest, Romania," he teased. "That’s it. It used to be that Italy was the best place to make quality films without spending a lot of money. Then, after communism, it was Prague. Then Budapest. Now it’s Bucharest." Well, now we know what he's up to and it's pretty exciting.

Let's keep this quick for the sake of unlucky filmmaker Terry Gilliam, who probably winces every time his long-delayed project "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" is brought up by the ever-curious media. So for the umpteenth time, the status of his on-again, off-again 'Quixote' film? We'll have to keep waiting unfortunately. "It’s off again now. Postponed until next year at least," Gilliam told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview.

The saga of "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" is long and complicated, with numerous starts on stop on Terry Gilliam's long mooted projected that has become something of an albatross around his neck. But it seems there is some light appearing at the end of what has been a very long, and often times dark tunnel. Last fall, Gilliam teased that he was hoping to make the film this spring with Robert Duvall and when we caught up with him at the Marrakech Film Festival in December, he provided another small update saying that the long attached Ewan McGregor was no longer involved. Well, it appears there are some signs of hope.

It's been nearly thirty years since the members of Monty Python appeared on screen together in "The Meaning of Life." Thanks to most of the group feeling it was the weakest of their film outings, long-standing fissures in the group, and resistance by John Cleese in particular to a possible sequel to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Monty Python have never since worked on the same project since. That said, members have teamed on various projects over the years -- all the surviving members (Graham Chapman having passed in 1989) except Terry Gilliam appeared in Terry Jones' "The Wind In The Willows" in 1996, while there have been a few on-stage reunions, generally with one or more members absent.
