Terry Gilliam suffers stroke ahead of Don Quixote's Cannes premiere

quote [ The veteran director is said to be recovering well in London as court rules against producer attempting to prevent film festival screening. ]

On a related note, today's episode of 99% Invisible, about how doctors tell their patients bad news, included interviews with John Cleese (who is fine) and mentions of Terry Jones, who sadly is suffering from dementia. Link in extended.

Lots of good episode supporting info, video clips and such at the 99pi website, as usual. https://99percentinvisible.org/episode/breaking-bad-news/

the curse of Don Quixote
Gilliam had to abandon an initial version starring Johnny Depp in 2000 due to a series of calamities, including flooding, ill health and money problems.

Finally remade with Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver, Cannes selected the film to close the festival on May 19, but a last-minute legal challenge from a former producer who says he owns the rights meant that remained uncertain until Wednesday’s ruling.
