The Rights To Terry Gilliam’s ‘Don Quixote’ Are Still With The Filmmaker




According to El Español, the rights to "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote" are in the hands of the production company, not evil schemer producer Paulo Branco.
Basically, Branco just claimed victory in the court case for the sake of claiming victory. No single frame of film was shot when Branco was producer, which means he doesn’t have any claim to the finished film. The problem actually lies in the misguided way Gilliam ended his contract with Branco, which will most probably be settled with money. Gilliam thus owes Branco 10,000 euros, and maybe more. This has nothing to do with the film’s release.
The actual producer of the film said he was going to stay silent on the issue until Branco went public with his victory, with his bogus claims that he now held the rights to the film, there was no choice but to set things straight publicly. 
“The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has not U.S. release date just yet, but rumors say many distributors are interested in the film and it will most likely be seen stateside very soon.
Here are my thoughts on "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," which I saw at Cannes:
"Make no mistake about it, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” is a love letter to art, to those that dare dream and how it can also lead us to madness, but the best most joyous kind. The overt symbolism is delivered here with a wink from Terry Gilliam, who returns to his roots of satirical comedy with this fantastic film. The best way to compare Gilliam’s achievement is to a delirious dream happening before your very eyes. It is an uncompromising work, purposely delivered as a mess, I mean, how could it not be, with the tumultuous journey this film has had these last 25 years, Gilliam, quite frankly, doesn’t give a damn about failing. And so, he invites us to check logic at the door before entering the world of ‘Quixote.” Explanations take a backseat for the moment-to-moment chaos happening before our very eyes. Which results in some of the most personal filmmaking he’s done in more than two decades, with more than a few references to art and the creative here. In other words, this is a rejuvenation. Terry Gilliam, the auteur, is back because, it seems, like taking chances and possibly failing clearly excites him again. “Quixote” is a fearless movie that is easily his best work since his streak of films in the ’90s. He infuses his film with Gilliam-esque mayhem and set-pieces too outrageous to describe in a single passage. Mainstream audiences might not be pleased, but this is the Gilliam we used to love, the go-for-broke creative that refused to adhere to conventionality."
