Before he gets to his stint at the English National Opera this spring, directing "The Damnation Of Faust," helmer Terry Gilliam will get his latest short film venture, "The Wholly Family," in the can. First announced last year, the film stars Cristiana Capotondi, Douglas Dean, Nicolas Connolly and Sergio Solli and is being shot on location in Italy, and not without good reason. The film is being sponsored by pasta company Garofalo as part of an annual series of films about Naples, and while details of what it's about have been kept under wraps, the project does have an original script by Gilliam and is not based off the Eve Merriam poem of the same name.

While he spent most of the year struggling to mount his cursed project "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," Terry Gilliam certainly hasn't been sitting idle, rocking a webcast for Arcade Fire in August, directing an energy drink mini-movie thing “The Legend Of Hallowdega,” and he’s currently gearing up for a production of Berlioz’s “The Damnation of Faust” at the English National Opera in London. But it looks like he's going to squeeze in one more film project before he focuses on the stage.

The hot new job title to have around Hollywood is "Creative Godfather." Christopher Nolan is the most prominent name to have the mantle, as he overlooks Zack Snyder's upcoming "Superman: Man of Steel" but another helmer has quickly taken a shine to the new moniker.
