Terry Gilliam Considering Crowdfunding For 'Don Quixote,' Says He Was Offered To Direct A Fellini Script

"I’ve been pestered to do it for years, and there’s something that bothers me about it," Terry Gilliam told us last summer about the idea of crowd-funding a film. "I think the fact that a couple have managed to pull off something does not mean everybody is going to." But it looks like the filmmaker has had a change of heart.

"I’ve been pestered to do it for years, and there’s something that bothers me about it," Terry Gilliam told us last summer about the idea of crowd-funding a film. "I think the fact that a couple have managed to pull off something does not mean everybody is going to." But it looks like the filmmaker has had a change of heart.

With "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" hopefully/aspiring to shoot this fall, the director is opening up more and more about his plans for the long developing and somewhat cursed project. And he has now revealed that he might just ask you to chip in. Speaking with Swedish site Moviezine, he revealed that he's now considering going the Kickstarter route (apologies for Google Translate). "I've met the man behind 'Veronica Mars,'  and he says he can [raise] more money for 'Don Quixote,' " Gilliam said. "I have long avoided the idea of ​​crowdfunding, but I think the main thing now is just to get it done so I can move on with my life."

It's an interesting turnaround from the director, though he's probably realizing that in this climate raising the kind of money he needs for 'Don Quixote' is probably hard to come by from traditional sources. And he has already said many times about his upcoming "The Zero Theorem," it's the smallest budget he's worked with in years and years. And we can't imagine he's being offered much bigger for 'Quixote.' Anyway, something to consider for now and we'll see if it happens.

Meanwhile, Gilliam — who has already revealed he briefly toyed with "Harry Potter" and was eyed for a "Dr. Strangelove" sequel by the late Stanley Kubrick — now reveals another "might have been" with another legendary filmmaker. "There is a script that Fellini wrote that I was offered to do. But I have no desire to, Fellini should do it, but [he's not here]. I like the idea of ​​movies as a product of a specific person and their environment...," Gilliam shared. And hard's to argue with that reasoning, though Gilliam directing Fellini script sort of makes perfect sense.

"The Zero Theorem" opens later this year.
