Terry Gilliam and Johnny Depp

Filmmaker Terry Gilliam has made more than a few movies in his career that became cherished favorites with millions of fans around the world, but the man has never had it easy getting seeing his cinematic visions realized. Gilliam has clashed with major studios repeatedly (his battle with Universal Pictures over the final cut of his 1985 dystopian satire Brazil is legendary) and seen several of his projects crumble into dust.

Most notoriously was the legendary collapse of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, an independently-financed feature that reunited Gilliam with his Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas star Johnny Depp. The production was plagued by problems with financing, location difficulties, and the sudden hospitalization of actor Jean Rochefort, who had been cast as Cervantes’ classic literary dreamer Don Quixote. The troubled production and its ultimate dissolution was the focus of the 2002 documentary Lost in La Mancha.

At some point along the line, superstars Matt Damon and Josh Brolin also joined the cast, and just a few weeks ago 13-year-old Hailee Steinfeld grabbed the all-important lead role of Mattie Ross after an intense audition process that saw the likes of 15,000 or so teenage girls trying their luck.

Now, according to the trades, Barry Pepper is the latest to join in on the party. The actor has been cast as “Lucky” Ned Pepper. Pepper hasn’t been around very often lately, but he has certainly made his mark appearing previously as a talented sniper in Saving Private Ryan and as a prison guard in The Green Mile. Ryan director Steven Spielberg will act as an executive producer on this project as well.
