Terry Gilliam Talks Again

The final Cambridge Film Festival podcast contains an interview with Terry Gilliam, who was there to present Tideland. His interviewer is a 13 year old boy who acts just like a 13 year old boy, doesn't really get Brazil and pretends to know who Harry Shearer is when he clearly doesn't. Very juvenile, particularly the kid's last question which I'm not spoiling now, even by telling you that Terry's answer is, simply, "No".

I should have been at the festival too, but the fates conspired to ground me. Bah!

If you can't be bothered to listen to it all, and it does take some time to download, here's the really exciting bit - Terry finally has the rights to his The Man Who Killed Don Quixote script back again. To balance this out, he tells us that Good Omens already appears to have hit the rocks, with Terry doubtful that funding will be forthcoming, and confessing that three A-list actors have already turned down the lead.
